I’m back to the blue water but prefer to stay farther upriver in tidal Hudson. Just before the trip into the Ohio Valley I traveled up to Kingston, NY, with Fred of Tug44. One of many remarkable events of the way up was rounding a bend to see this sight of the venerable Kristin Poling, written about here.

All 281 feet of her single hull dates from 74 years ago.

Notice the portholes around the stern. Does that mean there’s a galley and crew quarters back there? Does anyone have fotos to share of those accommodations? I’d love to see how original or not the living space is. And where is the engine located? What type of engine is it?
