Are the boilers of Boiler Room #1 identified?

I am still thinking if the boilers fell straight down one by one while the stern section rotated facing against the bow.
I am suspecting that the boiler location, which looks like an arc, proves that the stern rotated and drifting before it finally sinking.
I marked the boilers red and scaled the stern just right to fit the wreck size.

To prove this, I need exact information about each boilers' original location
Does anyone have some information about this?
And would this be a likely scenario about the stern rotating?

The boilers of BR1 were at the forward double bottom piece. Without the bottom there was nothing which would hold them inside the hull.
