Hi Ralph.
I see my difficulty with the web spacing is that groups of the curved webs are evenly spaced but there are more exceptions than just the straight webs and the door. Do you have a consistent measure for the width over the flanges? Scaling off your drawing is suggesting that the width is less imposing than on the Britannic.

Good spotting about the outer columns not having Y bases, it's in The Shipbuilder pg45. I also see that in BR2 the deck E-G part of the column is not in line with the lower part. I take it that the aft inner BR1 columns rise between the boilers to G deck and then move outward slightly to continue up past the main steam pipes. Really need the isometric to sort this out... ah, I see Steve has got it.

Hi Steve, you're just in time.
Your last view is excellent, I don't think we've seen this area visualized before.

For the big horizontal girder across the aft bulkhead can I suggest, as a generality, that flanges on large beams were likely done by riveting on angles rather than trying to bend a long piece of plate. I think that Z channel in your first picture might just be flat plate riveted to the cross channel and an angle on the bulkhead. I had been wondering if there was a large cross girder/platform here and your pictures are making one look quite logical. The bulkhead steam valves have 4 cast feet and your platform is a place for them to sit.

Bill
