Scallop Boat Virtual Tour
The kitchen is known as a galley aboard a vessel. The crew's meals are prepared here, despite the weather conditions encountered, as crewmembers working sixteen hour days for weeks at a time require a lot of fuel themselves to keep going. A typical grocery bill on the Huntress for a two week trip totals fifteen hundred dollars. Traditionally, these ships once carried a cook aboard, but because the law allows for less than half the crew it once did, this burden now falls on the captain and the first mate.
