Porthole to the Storm

An open porthole to let the history dry out a bit… note the giant anchor chains disappearing through the hole in the floor, where the rest of the length is stored. The line on the right side is stretched tight because it’s one of the cables securing the boat to shore. All this equipment is steam-powered.

Map Desk

The back of the pilot house had a desk full of navigational notes and maps.
