A quick and dirty post on the 1912 tug formerly known as Grouper.  New name will be forthcoming.  The following four fotos show the removal of the DRXC Hercules diesel, which runs the generator and would, among other things, run the compressor to fill the air tanks.  Note the electrical board to the left.  This foto looks forward on the starboard side.

Tough work . . .  looking aft.

The owner Marc is looking for a parts engine.

This engine is headed for a shop.

Completely unrelated but some fotos of a vessel that newly acquired a whole new legacy:  CVN-70 appeared on tugster here in December 2010.
