Turecamo Boys heads to the next job. Turecamo Boys recent high-profile jobs include helping tow White Sea back into Ambrose Channel (here, go to p. 15) and logging more hours than any other assist vessel in 9/11 evacuation. The Moran towing story goes back at least to Michael Moran, an erstwhile mule driver along the Erie Canal who bought half interest in a harbor tug in 1860. Moran achievements include sending the first vessel into Havana harbor after the Spanish-American War.
