Scallop Boat Virtual Tour
This storage area is largely used as a changing room for crew members as they either prepare to go on deck to work or come off the deck at the end of their watch. It is located such that the crew does not track deck grime and water throughout the vessel, keeping the interior as clean and dry as you home. As the crew comes off the deck, they strip off their outer layer of foul-weather gear and boots and leave them ready to step back into at a moment's notice, much as firemen do with theirs. This can save valuable time in an emergency or allow the crewman a few moments extra sleep during their long days.
