Old boats



Kitchen boats (or wanigans) served kept boat crews fed during the days when logging was done on the river. Wanigans typically did not have engines so they had to be towed by other boats. They often were parked in calm bays near logging operations. Although large boats, like the “Hallett,” were big enough to have kitchens, most others did not. The wanigans often had fairly large kitchens with cook stoves and long tables, and very often bunks set up that would accommodate the logging crews.
