So, the tug with the most horsepower in the boro . . . Penobscot Bay, 140′ icebreaker tug?

Sorry. Only 2500 hp. Pati R Moran?

5100. The almost new Rosemary McAllister?

6000. Atlantic Salvor?

6480. Christian Reinauer?

Getting close with 7200. It has to be Powhatan?

Well at 5.73 megawatts . . . that’s 7684 horses. And the winner is . . .

Turning its back to my lens . . . Lincoln Sea, churning out 5.883 megawatts if my calculations are correct . . . er . . . 8000 horsepower. For more Lincoln Sea, see Fred’s shots here. Truth be told, though, I haven’t seen Lincoln Sea in the boro in a spell.

I hear there’s an 11,000 hp tug arriving in the watery boro soon.
