  1. Well walking over the Lamont Street bridge, my grandson nine years old waived some of the crew of the Albert.. they waved back 🙂 now this kid wants to know everything about the tugboat. He wants to see pictures of what it’s like inside, is there a kitchen is there a bathroom? How do we get more information? If not here, where?

    • It’s hard to find photos of the interior of a boat. I don’t think there are any of the Albert C online. I’m sure you could contact Illinois Marine Towing for info, though. I would guess there are multiple bathrooms and a kitchen onboard.
