Down in the hull of the SS Sicamous, Bill is cutting wood to use on the new shelves. They will be used to safely store the SS Sicamous artefacts and collections, and extend along one side of the Hull, through two whole compartments. #Penticton #volunteer

Steps to the model railway are being painted a bright yellow, to match the yellow engines! They are being painted in a makeshift work shop, inside the Ladies Saloon of the SS Okanagan. #Penticton #Volunteer http://ow.ly/i/ha2g5

Down in the hull of the SS Sicamous, sheets of metal are being sawed into pieces, so they can be carried away. Each sheet of metal is the size of a doorway. They were cut out in the 1950’s and have been waiting in the hull ever since! #Penticton http://ow.ly/i/ha23o http://ow.ly/i/ha249

Did you know? A tug boat crew on the Okanagan had the Captain, one mate, a pilot for the busy fruit season, two deckhands, a chief engineer, a second engineer, two firemen, one bargeman, and a cook, who worked in the galley and also served as a steward. They were busy little ships!

Did you know? Tug boats could push two barges at a time. They would be at the sides of the vessel, making a V shape!
