Not seen in these pics is full Captain's Quarters complete with bed, shower, head(toilet) and sink.

Miss Emily is built with dual stainless steel lined "live" crab tanks.
Fresh ocean water is constantly circulating into the tanks and back into the ocean to keep the crabs alive and fresh.
Estimated capacity: 180,000 lbs. of fresh crab
