Whale towing?

Understanding that a whale weighed in at somewhere around 100 tons it was a bit of a mystery as to how these small wooden boats could possibly tow a carcass back to the factory from the open water; at least that’s the case until you peak inside the cabin. These things are essentially a large diesel engine with a rudder. The small mast at the front is a tiny crow’s nest for the whale spotter.
