#54871, "Cutters and lifeboats question..."


  

          

Hi

Need some quick help on this. What colour were the the cutters painted inside? I've seen few interpretations but am uncertain which is correct.

Also, the gripes on Titanic - which hold the lifeboats onto the chocks. Was the griped connected to the turnbuckle with a a chain, or with steel cables? I may be mixing up the ships, but on what appears to be an Olympic photo, I see cables; while on Titanic I can see chain.

Thanks in advance
/Jason

Hi Jason,

The interior of the lifeboats were painted a colour called "stone". You can see Art's interpretation of this colour in his paint reference at http://www.titanicmodel.net/uploads/4/1/6/0/41607523/paint_list_scale_equivalents.pdf (at the bottom of the document).

Regarding the boat gripes, you're correct that Olympic's differed from Titanic's. A discussion, with drawings, is at http://titanic-model.com/dc/dcboard.php?az=show_topic&forum=100&topic_id=50229&mode=full .

Regards,
Ralph

Hi & thanks a lot Ralph.

I almost got the gripes right. I correctly identified Titanic's, but I used the slip hook from your Olympic drawing (which I had found earlier). I don't know how accurate the drawings are, but they seem to show that the slip hook fasteners on Olympic's gripes were larger than those on Titanic. I didn't know that so when I tried to put them at the top Titanic's gripe chains, there wasn't enough room because of the proximity of the hull of the lifeboat. So I moved the fasteners a couple of links down. It didn't occur to me that the fasteners might be smaller on Titanic...



(edit)Just noticed now that I made them too big anyway.

Hi Jason,

It's possible the slip hook I drew on the Olympic drawing was a bit large.

Nice work on the rendering!

Regards,
Ralph
