Queen Mary carried twenty four lifeboats. They measured 12 ft. wide by
36 feet long. Each one was capable of holding 145 people. The lifeboats
were lowered on winches. However, once the davits were released the boats
used the force of gravity to lower to the water. The Queen Mary still has
one working lifeboat. It is lifeboat #24 and they have presentations onboard
at 1:00 pm. and 3:00 pm. daily.
This picture shows the graceful lines
of the bridge and superstructure. Also the curved windows around the bottom
is the Observation Bar. I love to sit in there and watch the beautiful
The amazing bow. This ship went through seas so
rough that the waves would actually crash over this huge bow. The waves
would even crash over the bridge and go down the funnels.
Another view of the massive bow.
