How about this to follow yesterday’s post . . .  this Pilot was one of four completed by Leathem D. Smith Towing and Wrecking Co. in Sturgeon Bay WI in March and April 1941.  Actually, the paint on the bow notwithstanding, she’s now called Millie B.

Here she is just showing off some bare ankle in the lift at Viking Marine.

Here’s a photo of her on the Rondout  thanks to Paul Strubeck–it’s cropped slightly differently from the previous time I used this photo–along with Spooky, the second of the four completed by Leathem Smith in spring 1941. The first time I saw this boat was here in August 2013.  She spent a lot of time in Philadelphia, so I’ll bet my friends on the Delaware have photos of her also.

Thanks to David Black for the photo of Millie B in the slings just above Paul’s photo.
