I would hazard a guess that the arrangement you saw in Titanic, An Illustrated History would probably be it. There are photos which exist of the Olympic in her post Titanic arrangement that strikes me as being plausible as well.

Cordially,

Here's a link to a transcript from a 1910 "Engineering" article, describing the Welin davits. It includes info and diagrams of the PLANNED arrangement of Titanic and Olympic.

Ignore my ramblings before and after the article. It was written in a last-minute rush. ;-)
