Here was 1.
Bob Stopper sends along this foto from Sodus Bay on Lake Ontario. Miss Debbie, 1969, was originally 30′ but extended to 46′.
Here’s a bow shot I took a few years back.
The Bronx and W. O. Decker here headed up along the west side of Manhattan before the 2010 Hudson River tug race. Click here to see a clip called Bootleggers Return to the Bronx, re-enacting a 1922 federal raid on a barge where “hootch” was sold. The clip was sent along by Robert Apuzzo, who samples the bottle on the bow of the tug in the clip.
From the 2008 Hudson River tug race, Terilou, I believe. I know nothing about Terilou‘s past or present, although it may be tied up on the Raritan River.
And here’s a boat i just stumbled onto . . . Cynthia Garner. Anyone know her story?
The first foto comes compliments of Bob Stopper, the eyes on western NY waterways. All others by Will Van Dorp.
