This virtual program involves a tour of the 1907 Steam Tug Hercules. Often referred to as “engines with hulls around them,” tugs present an appearance of strength through engineering. Exploring Hercules can reinforce this perception, since about two thirds of the interior is taken up by her engine system!
However, a more careful investigation will show a different, though complicated truth. There are dining rooms, a bunk room, and private cabins. Even in the engine room, you will spot desks and hand-operated controls. In truth, the human touch and experience is everywhere. This human side of Hercules is buried beneath her technology. Join Rangers Chris and JR for a look beneath the facade of this maritime marvel.
