As previously announced, due to the great success of our Titanic Photographic Series, we will be adding two more parts to the series for an overall total of ten. Additionally, we have announced that we will be including selected video clips of Titanic starting in January. Once again, thank you very much for making this site the number one blog for shipwreck research and information.
The following part will feature the boiler room area at the aft end of the bow section of RMS Titanic. There were a total of twenty-nine boilers on Titanic. Of these twenty-nine, twenty-four were double-ended and five were single-ended boilers. Each of the double-ended boiler is 15 feet nine inches diameter and twenty feet long and contained six furnaces. The single-ended boiler had the same dimensions but were 11 feet nine inches long with three furnaces. Overall Titanic had 159 total furnaces and from the porthole of the submersible, appear quite massive. Our final picture of this part shows how the aft section of the bow is starting to settle and materials from above are sliding down towards the boilers.
To access these new photographs, as well as other Titanic photographs, scientific research paper and accompanying PowerPoint presentation go to our corporate website at http://www.nauticalresearch.com and within the text of this home page select the link entitled Educational Services. This will bring you to our educational page where all this valuable information can be viewed and downloaded for personal use only. I will be placing new photographs from various sections of RMS Titanic every week so you might like to syndicate our site to be notified of the latest news. Next week, we will be publishing the latest photographs from the stern section of the ship.
