I should also have mentioned that traditionally prior to a ship entering service, the dockers and their families are given an open day to wander the ship and the dock involved.

I think an open mind is required and the ability to see through any bullshit that is claimed. The video alone disproves the iceberg story for starters, and the missing rivets would explain - after the ship had been idled mid-atlantic, - that a period of around 2 and a half hours to sink the ship ties in exactly, yet the video does not follow up that information, and goes on instead to investigating how long the wreck would take to disappear instead.

Why would the captain have stopped the ship to lay idle for hours without reason given in mid-atlantic?

For some obscure reason? or to allow rivets to be removed successfully before further water pressure is put on them?
The fact the iceberg story is a pack of lies may be pointing us in the right direction. The rivets would have to be punched out from the inside of the hull - increasing water pressure from the motion of the ship from the outside would have hindered that operation to some degree, and also increased the ingress of water taken onboard during the removal.
There had been no collision. Dismantling had occurred mid-atlantic as a scuttle operation. - but where were all the claimed passengers? Would the passengers not have made a fuss if the ship had just stopped for hours with a reported iceberg fast approaching?
The only damage caused to the ship had been resulting from the sinking. If the ship had been scuttled mid-atlantic (to hide the evidence) then a service ship would have been either with her, or called to the vicinity before rivets were removed.

So - we have ascertained that the sinking was in fact a scuttle operation, ( by a dismantle procedure mid-atlantic) and claimed as an accident with an iceberg to enable insurance payout to be made.

So the following question is:
Were there hundreds/thousands of rich family members aboard the ship?

The answer would have to be emphatically, NEVER.
Why? Because, even the richest ship operators could possibly be put out of business altogether if even one family sued them if ever anyone found out about the scuttling. No company in their right mind would ever take that risk with the rich.
With poor people, YES, no problem - they would not even give it a second thought. But not with rich passengers.
So the story about all those passengers losing their lives cannot be true either. Not with a scuttle operation.
In fact, those that took part in the removal of rivets had at the same time put their own lives at risk, because they had done so. I would not be at all surprised if they had been locked in the hull after the removal - (less witnesses to cause later problems).

They couldn't very well say to the insurers, "Oh we were travelling across the Atlantic with no passengers, and this iceberg sank the ship!", could they now?

Were any passenger compensation payments made through the company insurers?
