By Diane M. Byrne Intimate gathering areas like the saloon are populated with new soft goods and modern entertainment equipment; the wood paneling is original. Here's what the forward water tank area looked like after it had been shot blasted. The TV room as it began to take shape. Classic elements like the inlaid compass rose complement the overall look. The owner took on the responsibility of designing his master suite. The old engine room had dry exhausts and was therefore in need of a major update. The modern Caterpillars permit a 17-knot speed. The funnel was removed for access to the dry exhaust stacks. Capt. Mark Yendle and his crew took on two extra hands for spraying. The exhaustive, 12-month refit was well worth the effort.
