Does anyone know how many boilers are strewn around the Titanic wreck? According to wreck footage and models I've seen, 5 can still be seen in place where the bow separated. A bit of a far cry from all the stories about "boilers smashing through the bulkheads" that we've always heard. Perhaps the others are still in place? (with, of course, the exception of the 5 from the "missing" area of Titanics hull)

It seems like your count is pretty acurate, although I do not know the exact number they have found.

I think you are right in saying that the boilers are still in place in the bow section. I never could understand where people got the idea that Titanic "barfed out her boilers" when she was on end, as they were pretty fastend in there with the uptakes and everything attached to them, plus the bulkheads.

I guess the only ones we see outside of the wreck have spilled out from the breaking point. There is none in the stern as its section starts at the reciprocating engine room.

As far as I know there are 4 boilers, from the missing section of the ship, that are found in the debris field. If I am not mistaken there are 5 visible on the bow section. as for the other boilers if they broke from their positions they are still in the ship, but personely I believe that they are still in their orignal positions.

Here's the 5 boilers that can still be seen in the wreck. And from the diagrams I've looked at, there were 5 more in the next compartment aft.

I noticed your picture title has Daytona 500 on it. Did you go to the race this year and see a Titanic exhibit? If so, that's pretty cool! Titanic and Nascar!

Yeah, I was down in FL for the week bouncing between Daytona and Orlando. Orlando has a permanant Titanic museum with a bunch of artifacts from the Olympic and some recreated rooms from Titanic. Here's the link for those interested: http://www.titanictheexperience.com/

I have been there. It was cool except that my grandma wanted to leave very fast though; I did not get to really enjoy it.

Note. Please dont make fun of my puntuaction. I just learned it in school and love to use it.

I think some of the roar people heard can be attributes to the acual ship breaking up under the water as opposed to the boilers spilling out. Yes some of them did but imagine The stern coming out of the water and everything inside not stapled down falling, on top of the ship itself ripping up. There were 29 boilers inside the Titanic, I believe most are still attached in there original positions
