I’m working on identifying this . .. tugboat and engine, but I know very little about these things. I hope you enjoy the fotos as much as I liked taking them. Is the wood/metal unit to the left side of the foto part of a coal hopper?
I homed in on text, but I don’t know this name. The internet tells me they made marine motors but not what these motors powered.The wood/metal unit I mentioned before lies here between the engine and the boiler, I gather.
All fotos by Will Van Dorp, who hasn’t been very helpful in this post. Hope you enjoy looking at fotos and either identifying what I can’t or getting to this part of the post having learned very little along the way. TES might offer more info at that link. Maybe a trip to Mystic would help “demystify” these engines. .
