#55796, "RE: Mystery Box RMS Titanic & RMS Oceanic !"

Hi Lionel,

Thanks for the images. Just a minor correction, the ship in your winch photo is the S.S. Briton of 1897. There is a superficial resemblance between the winch and the Titanic object, but I don't know how significant that is. The Briton boat winch is probably steam powered and would be a lot longer in the fore-and-aft direction.

There is no room on the Titanic object for anything like a steam engine or electric motor. A hand-cranked reel is a possibility, but it's hard to understand what its purpose would be, or why it was later removed from Olympic.

There is an Oceanic photo showing a hand-powered device of about the right size on either side of the ship near the bulwarks. But I suspect it's a shipyard tool (maybe a grinding wheel?) rather than a fitting on the ship itself.



Regards,
Ralph
