Hello everybody,

I wrote to Ken Marschall, and Ken replied, this


Lionel,

I see that there are questions about these winches in the TRMA thread to which you linked me. Yes, they were in Olympic/Titanic. See the attached enhanced composites from imagery obtained on Sept. 23, 2001.

The one at the forward end of the room is of course lost in the debris somewhere. But the aft one is plain to see if one studies the video repeatedly.

None of the three supporting pillars running through the center of the room were standing erect or even identified during the exploration. But although the aft-most pillar is gone, the aft winch is there, and the ROV Jake passed right over it en route to examine whether the watertight door is open or closed. We weren't expecting a winch, so Cameron drove the bot over it without stopping. Heading back out later he piloted the bot farther to port, and all we see is the extreme end of the port winch drum.

The fallen rusticles from above make for debris that is about waist deep in the aft part of the room as there is much steel overhead to rust. Not so in the forward part where there is open water overhead and the deck between the engines is remarkably clean.

In all images we are facing aft. In the third one we are moving right above the winch.

The light seen in the distance is coming from Mir 2 which was resting atop the decking above.

Feel free to post the pics and my comments to TRMA along with my good wishes to all.

Ken

Sorry for all my spelling mistakes.
