M/V Charleston, 2 of 4

Here are some interior shots of the 64-year-old towboat Charleston, which was available for open house and public tours this past weekend at Point Pleasant, W.Va.

First, the pilothouse, where Captain Jimmy works.

The view out the back door of the pilothouse.

The engines and the engine room.

The galley.

 A commendation from the Coast Guard.

And my 11-year-old, almost 12-year-old son Adam dreaming of piloting one of these vessels someday.
