Absolutely.... fantastic engine room... it's big, just over two decks deep, with great vintage equipment and a work bench area, too. And when we are underway we need folks to stand engine room watch. See pictures of the engine room in our album. They are some of the oldest operating Cleveland V-12 278A's still going. Our engineering staff are experts, some having served in that very same engine room in the Coast Guard or on Modoc, plus Mr. Tom Payne, an authority on old engines, including steam (but we don't have steam.) And we have over 13,000 spare parts, some of it still in packages from WW-II as well as hundreds of blue-prints and manuals.
