QE2 Three deck Aft at the Stern
« on: Mar 04, 2009, 05:28 PM »
Always wondered what the reason was for this configuration and hoping someone out there can help.  Looking at Three Deck aft there, just above the "QUEEN ELIZABETH 2 SOUTHAMPTON" is the white bulkhead (wall) that follows the curvature of the stern from the PORT side around to just STBD of the ship's centerline (pictured below).  Does anyone know what is behind the bulkhead?

I figure those lucky owners of copies of the General Arrangement plans could take a look and maybe post a photo of the area as someone did for the "mystery box" (galley extension) on Upper Deck forward.

Thanks!

Also does anyone know what space(s) are behind the 2 stern portholes on Four Deck?

Hi Bob,

The bulkhead is disapointingly unexciting, along the centre line of the ship just inside the bulkhead is capstan machinery, no doubt directly connected to the capstan directly above on 2 deck, and the further over to port is a continuation of the crew accomodation, laundry workers I think, but not 100%.

The open area to Starboard is open space, designated on original plans as female crew open space! Don't know if it stayed that way or became mixed gender at any time.

The plan of that deck I have is small, so hopefully someone with a larger scale will beable to help, if not I will do my best to get a pciture to you!

According to a much larger scale plan I have of 4 deck, the port of the two portholes you ask after lights a stewards cabin, and the starboard one a small empty space outside a chain locker, presumably chain handling space. On the builders plans only the port of the two portholes is actually draw on, obviously a last minute change!

Hope this helps, Andrew

Bob
  The female space is on the original building plans down as female crew promenade with the box being the capstan machinery
  And this hasnt changed
  4 deck the two portholes on the original builders plans appears to be just space linked to the chain locker,.However it now shows the one porthole on the port side to be a crew cabin.You can only imagine the vibration and noise in those cabins.
 I did visit once a crew cabin on 6 deck and was quite amazed by the noise. 
From the moment you first glimpsed the Queen,
 you just knew you were in for a very special time ahead.!

Not to mention the throbbing OF THE ENGINES!

Well l was on the bottom bunk,not quite sure how l would haved fared being on top and it was years ago 
In 3006 on a bad crossing of the Med and hearing the waves against the hull  l was half expecting to get soaked any minute.

X-C,
  This is an awesome view.  Do you have a copy or original of this deck plan (or set of plans) that you'd be willing to copy or sell?
