    Nice shot. The bumpers along the side and on the nose are interesting. Is 1923 the year of manufacture?

    I always wanted to lie naked on a bearskin rug in front of a fireplace. Cracker Barrel didn't take kindly to it.

    Love your tug shots...colorful, well done and always informative. Yes, I tend to look up the area or even, if I can, the actual tug you capture in your images. There is usually an interesting "back story" to many of these hard-working tugs. Thanks for bringing these images to us!

    Buffalo started out as a steam tug and was converted to diesel. Buffalo figured significantly in the Tug Roundup until she sank recently

    Cool shot!

    Back in elementary school we learned a song about the Erie Canal and now it's going through my head....
