Thanks to Isaac Pennock, who took this photo on the hard in Muskegon MI.  The name Joel B and the port of registry New York is recognizable in the metal.

Does anyone remember Joel B in NY?  

She’s not large, 30- to 40′ and a beam of less than 15′, wide load sign notwithstanding.  Of course a 15′ load on a road trailer is wide.  The 1973 record of merchant ships show a tugboat by this name in 1973 up by North Arlington NJ, up by Lake Hopatcong.  Might this be it?  How long has she been in the Great Lakes?

All photos, Isaac.  Thanks.
