Long-time tugster readers know that fish tugs have been lavished with a generous amount of electronic ink over the years here.   You’d not be surprised then to read this title.   Although it’s hard to get a photo of Bob S exterior,

it’s owned by the Beaver Island Marine Museum, and that makes it easy to get inside.

Above the wheelhouse looking to starboard and below . . . to port.

The net hauler is mounted to starboard. Who knows how many pounds of fish have passed through here?

The power is provided by Kahlenberg Brothers.  

Enjoy the parts and



the advertising.  When Bob S worked, she looked like this.
