#52804, "RE: Funnel internal structure"
In response to In response to 9


          

Hi Eric,

Thanks for the info. I can't see these on any photo I have, but they might be difficult to spot against the black-painted funnel top. Would you guess they were also present on the port side?

I realize it may not be possible for various reasons, but if you could post a cropped image showing the blocks it might shed some light on their purpose.

The only thing that comes to my mind is the topping lift for the sounding spars. You may recall that Bob Read did a research article on the Olympic-class sounding machine setup (http://www.titanic-cad-plans.com/olympic_bulwark.pdf?9d7bd4). One of his conclusions was that the topping lift line probably used one of the painter's blocks at the top of the funnel, but these new ones you mention might also fit the bill.

Regards,
Ralph
