Frances . . . built on Long Island in 1957 looked quite happy yesterday.  She languished a few years a decade ago, but she’s now shiny and back at work. Click here and scroll through to see Frances as I first saw her in faux-wood paint.  Here are the basics on her.

Cheyenne, a Brooklyn-built Bushey tug from 1965,  is a veteran of the canal, as seen here and here.  In the second link, she’s house down ducking underneath the bridge in Sylvan Beach with scows bound for the sixth boro.  Here she was this past summer in Oswego after traversing the canal east to west and Lake Erie bound.

Also, some photos I took yesterday of Thomas D. Witte, built in Louisiana in 1961.  Her air draft now precludes her operating on the canal.
