This no-nonsense machine . . .

I can show you but tell you nothing about.  I don’t know.

Nearby,  Haskell was built  in 1936, but that’s all I know.

The photos above I took in Holland MI, and the rest  . . . in Sturgeon Bay, WI  Chas. Asher dates from 1967, and I know nothing about the one on shore.

Here’s that same “high and dry” tug seen in profile.

Spuds–now THAT is a name for a small tug, was launched from 1944.

Duluth appears to have a proud owner;  she came off the ways in 1954.

Here, Duluth moves a dump scow up to the bulkhead on the Sturgeon Bay Ship Canal, where her very wet dredge spoils will be offloaded.

All photos by Will Van Dorp.
