Call this a “what’s it.” I post the answer at the end of this set. So the question is … What is this style of vessel called? I’d seen one prior to this on Lake Ontario.

Elsie J has been in the same South Haven, Michigan, family for three generations.

Evelyn S, quite similar is a display at Michigan Maritime Museum.

This unnamed vessel, same idea, is ready to splash in Muskegon.

Judy Ann, also in Muskegon, needs work. So what are they?

Check this Michigan link. More on these tugs later. By the way, Erie Canal’s Urger, featured here several times, was originally built near Muskegon as . . . a fishing tug.  Anyone have ideas on why the vessels above are called tugs. . . other than that they tug nets?

If looking for specific "word" in archives, search here.
