Interaction with guests
There is a sailor living aboard in its complete separate quarters at the low and extreme back of the boat (which is 40meters long). Absolutely invisible, he appears morning (10 o clock and evening, 18h) to uncover or cover the pool. Of course, he appears kindly too in demand of passengers to provide information about the boat or anything useless around.
