Fred is one of many fine folks I’d never have met if I hadn’t started this blog.  And this weekend, I learned that Fred’s inspired some friends from one of my other networks, who read this article, to lust for their own pleasure tug.  I took this foto from Rhinecliff last spring;  Fred’s at the helm.

Fred took this foto of tug44 a few weeks ago, just before haul-out.  By now the drain plug has been pulled on his part of the canal.

Now how do you suppose he manages to fit this powerplant into his American Tug?

Uh . . . well, actually this is the 16-cylinder diesel of Cornell.
