Crab Feed aboard the SS Red Oak Victory a success!

On Saturday January 31, 2015, the crew of the SS Red Oak Victory (ROV) hosted the 1st ever crab feed aboard the ship in the special events room also known as cargo hold #4. The crew was so happy that everyone reported to be stuffed after a lovely evening of warm crab with butter sauce, Caesar salad, and artisan bread! The weather that day was unseasonably warm to the delight of the guests. Tickets were sold out over a week before the event, so we had a full house of 150 people!

The ROV crew was also joined by Chef Jerry Clopp and the students of the Hercules High School Culinary Academy, who assisted Victor Shepard in preparing the food. Thank you students!
