Can anyone give me an idea how the lifeboats were arranged on Olympic in her later years, say after her refit in the Twenties?
I also understand that in this refit some changes were made to the superstructure,again any help please.
I am building a model using Titanic as a starting point and any help would be appreciated.

Post refit OLYMPIC carried 12 sets of davits on each side. Basically an addition four sets on each side fitted midships where the solid bulwark was. Sometime she is shown with double lifeboats under one or more davits but is you stick to 12 boats on each side you can't be wrong.
