#54968, "Welin davits"


          

I know this may be a dumb question but I haven't seen this in awhile and when I actually need them i can't find them. Does anymore have those dimensioned plans for Titanics davits?

Thank You,
Brady Guzik

Hi Brady,

The davit plans can be downloaded from the UK National Archives at http://discovery.nationalarchives.gov.uk/details/r/C3245092 . Be warned that it's a pretty big file (61 Mb).

Regards,
Ralph

Slightly off topic, and I don't know if this has been shown here before, but a replica of the Welin davit was put on display at the former factory site of Nydkvist & Holm, in Trollhattan, Sweden, in 2016. The original davits for the Olympic & Titanic were apparently assembled there, and then shipped to Belfast for installation.

The davit replica was put on display as part of the city's celebrations for having "city rights" for 100 years (since 1916), as well as commemorating the city's association with the Titanic.

See attached picture

Henry J.

Hi Henry,

Thanks, I had not seen that before. It might be mistaken for some sort of abstract sculpture if you didn't know what it really was.

Regards,
Ralph

Henry -

Now that is some interesting information. I did not know that the Welin davits were "part" NOHAB! Thanks for sharing.

Hi Morten,

I grew up in the city, but didn't know about this either until recently when I saw a picture in the book 'Titanic in Photographs', and then the memorial was erected last summer. Nydkvist & Holm (NOHAB) were probably best known for manufacturing locomotives.

Now, I first assumed that the replica was manufactured using original plans, but an article states that photos were used as a guide. Perhaps the experts on this forum can tell just by looking at it?

Regards,
Henry

Hi Henry,

The proportions seem a bit off compared to Titanic's davits, but it's possible they based it on a different model (there were many variations on the basic quadrant davit design). Anyway, it captures the look of the original pretty well.



Regards,
Ralph

Henry -

For us railroad freaks here in Norway, NOHAB is definitely best known for producing the locomotives such as our beloved Di3's and your MY's. I am also a modelrailroader, and I got a new Di3 in the mail just three days ago!

I see that you got your answer about the davits. One can in fact see that the davit is slightly off by just looking at it. But as Ralph said it captures the look of it very well. I like the light on top!

Regards,

- Morten

Thanks Ralph and Morten for your comments.

Makes me wonder if this local firm perhaps produced davits or other items for other ocean liners as well...
I don't have time to do any detailed reserach into it at this time, but it is interesting to note that interesting stories like this can be found in your own backyard...

P.S
A quick online search returned some photos from Nydkvist & Holm captioned 'Titanic', but I suspect it may be wrong:

Type 'Titanic' into the searchbox returns four images:
