Hi Bill,

The funnel shrouds were fastened to eye pads on the deck. A rope connection (I think the correct term is "lanyard" or "lashing") was used to join the lower end of the shroud to the eye pad link, as shown here.



I don't know how exactly the shrouds failed on the Titanic.

I vaguely recall reading of a shroud or stay being cut during the sinking, but I don't know if it was a funnel shroud. Someone more familiar with the inquiry testimony may be able to help us with that.

Regards,
Ralph
