TUG GROUPER

Built in 1912 by the Great Lakes Towing Company of Cleveland, OH, the Grouper is a single screw tugboat with a length of 74 feet, a beam of 19 feet 06 inches, and a depth of 12 feet.
In 1957, it was converted from steam to diesel, and operates on a Kahlenberg 6-cylinder engine.
History:
The tug was originally named the Gary. In 1934, it was sold to the C. Reiss Coal Company and renamed Green Bay. North American Towing purchased the Green Bay in 1981 and renamed her Oneida. In 1987, it was sold to Wellington Towing of Sault Ste. Marie, MI and renamed Iroquois. Its original owner and builder, the Great Lakes Towing Company, purchased it in 1990, and renamed it Alaska. In 1999, it was sold to Florida Marine Terminals and renamed Grouper, but on its delivery voyage was left along the Erie Canal, where it remains, and put up for sale.
