The Forecastle deck was the forward most deck on a ship.
On Titanic it was located at B Deck level. The deck was accesed by two staircases at the after end of the deck, coming from the Forward Well Deck. This deck had the base of the foreward mast, and cargo hatch no.1. This deck included capstans, bollards, winches, the central anchor, anchor chains, the breakwater and the anchor crane. The forward end of the deck was blocked by a curved railind and the forestay for the forward mast.
The forecastle deck was 106 feet long.
The forecastle deck is pretty much intact except for the cargo hatch no. 1 was blown off and landed a few feet in front of the ship. Also, the mast was bent backwards and damaged the bridge superstructur.
