Is it just me or do these boats lack portholes? They seem to have a lot less than a North Sea boat.

The American vessels have traditionally been devoid of ports.

Not sure if it is some regulation, or not, but the Jones Act rings a bell with me.

Cheers Al, I do remember being on an American flagged ship once. There were no bulkhead linings and all the 'furniture' was steel with minimal fabric, timber etc.I was told it was some Maitime regulation but it was an old ship. Maybe one and the same set of Regs?.....

1970-80's A lot of American Owned/Flagged offshore/tugs had no accommodation certs as the 'living space' was actually classed as cargo space and somewhere on the 'accom., housing' there would be a section of 'bulkhead' that was bolted in position --- the supposed entrance (hatch-cover) to this cargo space.
I do not know if this practice is still followed today or not ?
