Johnston Brothers of Ferrysburg, MI,  built Urger in 1901.  The boat below–Ronald J. Dahlke, was built two years later as Bonita.  A few days ago, the two boats passed each other in Lyons . . . or to be more accurate, we passed the ex-Bonita.

I posted pics of this blue tug last year here . . . scroll through.   Unconfirmed report is that the boat is about to enter a new chapter in its life, after being the tool of someone with truth issues, as explained in the story here.

What I find even more remarkable is that an even older Johnston Brothers boat–Sea Bird–is still active.    Anyone know others?
