Tugle 2 stumped me until I saw the label:  “Matton hull 328.”  That was Challenger, seen here, and solving the puzzle, an unusually challenging task.

Unlike previous days’ “tugle 1 and 2,” I don’t know the story below.  

Raised lettering can be seen on the stern quarter, but I can’t make that out.  Lower line probably says “New York.”  Top line may end in “#2.” It could also be “use” and that suggests “Syracuse.”

Fire is the greatest danger on water, and this boat has clearly seen a conflagration.

If you’re appetite for puzzles is whetted, here’s one–East River Mystery 3– from a decade plus ago that I feel was never really solved.
