Triple engine/screw/stack Andrea’ might be the “newest” tugboat in the sixth boro.  All those triples is not something you see every day.  Of course, in the inland waters quadruples show up some time.

My question is . . . why

is there that apostrophe after the terminal A in Andrea’  ?

But briefly back to the triples . . .  here’s a photo I took near the Ohio/Mississippi confluence just over three years ago of American Pillar.  Click here for other Mississippi boats I photographed back then.   Any idea where/when  American Pillar came into service? Answer follows.  And Andrea’  ?
