Is the piano shown during the submersible dives in the movie a real artifact on the wreck? Or is it the piano from "The Piano"? (just kidding!!!)

The piano was a prop made by taking a real piano and beating it to death

I was truly disappointed to learn that the piano was fabricated for the movie by using a blow torch.

Kathleen--why were you dissapointed? Are you some kind of piano rights activist or something? What did you expect? Face it, nothing is wrong about this movie. Don't be so picky.

I think the piano was a very clever touch...and very very clever of the prop people who had to figure out a way to get a piano to look like it had been sitting on the bottom of the ocean. Kudos to them!
