Power for moving her from place to place is fm'nished by a 20-foot-long, Chrysler marine powered, steel- hulled jam boat, which as the name implies is normally used to break up log jams. A V-shaped notch has been fa- shioned at one end of the shack from heavy timbers. The bow of the jam boat nests into the V, and the shack and boat are lashed to- gether with rope to add stability. The inside of the "Wanagan" is furnished with rows of benches th.at seat around 30 boom men. There are two large windows in her forward end, affording the men a view as they travel back and forth to work. Between the windows is a door which is used for boarding and leaving. Before ~he "\Vanagan" existed boom mdi~ walked to work areas on the bay over floating catwalks.
