In reference to the rescue Sunday, Captain Matt Perricone of Cornell says,  “I would hope that this would be something any good mariner would do.” Read the rest of Paul Kirby’s report from Daily Freeman here.

It’s a very happy but pensive  birthday for Tugboat Cornell and crew, I’m sure.  See more media links below.

Cornell‘s been working since

1949.    Now tug and crew are also  . . . lifesavers.  And here.  Congratulations.   May she run and toot her whistles for another 61 years!!
