Lifeboats

Maybe a stupid question, but since I do not know, I ask. Are there any original lifeboats from Titanic today?

Hello Mopetti. It is not a stupid question. Many people have asked this very question. Apparently the lifeboats were stored in New York until December then no one knows where they went. It was mentioned that they were used on the Olympic as she now needed more lifeboats after what happened to Titanic. But I am sure Olympic got her new boats while in England. Also it would have been considered bad luck to use a lifeboat that had actually been used before.
