Re: Trumpeter & Titanic's Stem
FWIW, I have a copy of Olympic & Titanic: Ocean Liners Of The Past
(Patrick Stevens 1988) which is a reproduction of the June 1911 edition of 'The Shipbuilder
'. In it are plan views and elevations of all the decks of the Olympic class. On the starboard elevation drawing of the ship I drew a line along the keel and one along the stem. Using my trusty navigation ruler/protractor the two lines intersected at an angle of 86 degrees from the vertical. Hope this helps.
Stem doesn't look to be as 90-degrees as I thought. Hmmm. I guess I could have been wrong. Theoretically, it could happen.
