You can enter a new max bid at any time by entering a bid greater than your current high bid.
A max bid would make it more difficult for others to outbid you.

A max bid is the highest amount you are willing to pay for an auction item.

In response to other bids, the auction system will automatically increase your bid in the smallest increment possible (up to your max bid amount) in order to maintain your lead position.

To get a max bid you simply enter the maximum amount you are willing to pay into the bid form just as you would any other bid. If your bid is more than one bidding increment above the current high bid you will get a max bid unless another bidder has a max bid in place that is higher than the amount you enter.

At the end of the auction, the winning bidder pays only the lowest winning bid possible. That means that you can win an auction item at a price less than your max bid amount.

Your max bid amount is kept confidential from other bidders.

You can lower or delete a max bid by entering a lower amount.

You now have a max bid.

You can raise or lower your max bid at any time by entering a new amount.

If you wish to remove your max bid you can do so by entering an amount equal to the current bid into the bid form.

You have a max bid of %s on this item. That means that the system will place bids for you in response to bids from other bidders, up to %s.

You can adjust this max bid by using the form above.

You can add a max bid to protect your item against other bidders by using the form above.
Place a bid using the form above.

You can enter the minimum bid of %s or a greater amount.

If you bid more than the minimum bid you will get a max bid that the system will use to bid for you against other bidders, up to the amount you enter. So if you enter a bid of %s for this item, the system will place bids on your behalf in response to bids from other users until someone bids more than %s.

TUG CHANCELLOR
Bullt in 1938 by the Ira S. Bushey & Sons Shipyard in Brookyn, NY, the Chancellor is a single screw tugboat with a welded steel hull featuring fully-molded lines with an elliptical fan tail, round bilges and a pronounced sheer which sweeps upwards to meet a plumb bow. Its low profile with short funnels and low pilothouse is characteristic of canal tugs constrained by the NYS Barge Canal’s original 15.5 foot height limitation.
It has a length of 76.7 feet; a beam of 21 feet; and a depth of 9.3 feet. Its tonnage is 99 gross tons and 67 net tons.
Its hull is divided into six compartments by bulkheads, designed to house (moving from fore to aft): (first compartment) the vessel’s fuel tank, with a capacity of approximately 4,000 gallons; (second compartment) a 500-gallon potable water tank and the hydraulic ram used to raise and lower the pilothouse (installed in 1963); (third compartment) the lower engine room; (fourth compartment) a 4,000 gallon fuel tank; and (5th compartment) hydraulic steering equipment.
The engine is a direct-reversible, two-stroke, air-started 1937 D14 Fairbanks Morse diesel.
The main deck is open at the bow and stern. It is surrounded by steel bulwarks pierced by freeing ports in the after half of the deck. A deckhouse divided into compartments occupies more than half the length of the main deck, and houses (moving aft from the bow): a semi-circular compartment containing the lower pilothouse; the galley; the upper engine room, which is connected to the lower engine room by port and starboard ladderways; and a fourth compartment partitioned into four cabins with twin bunks. A small shower locker and a small toilet locker are located in quarter round chambers adjacent to the upper engine room.
The deckhouse or cabin top is accessed from the main deck by port and starboard ladders. The telescoping pilot house, modified in 1963, is accessible from the forward end of the cabin top through a narrow door. The pilothouse is semi-circular in design and contains six retractable windows across the front. Doors originally leading up to the pilot house from the sides have been replaced with two fixed windows.
The Chancellor was registered in the National Register of Historic Places in 2000 (99NR01573) as “Chancellor; a canal tugboat” under criterion C.
The last known owners of the Tug Chancellor have not properly maintained the vessel and it is now in a significant state of disrepair. NYSCC proposes no modifications to the vessel prior to auction, and offers the vessel in “as is, where is” condition.

 

**NYSCC is encouraging the re-use of this vessel versus scrapping of the unit. In the event this vessel is purchased solely for the purposes of scrapping, NYSCC asks the winning bidder to consider access to the vessel for the NYS Museum and to consider surrendering to the Museum any components it considers worthy of entry into the State's permanent collection.**

U.S. Army Bridge Erection Boat (Lysander)

This military surplus vessel dating to 1972 is a twin screw two-sectioned aluminum hull bridge erection boat powered by Detroit Diesel 3-53 engines. One of the engines is still in place while the other has been removed but is included in the sale of the vessel. The vessel measures 27’ in length, 8’ in beam, and 3’4” in draft. The ID plate is somewhat obscured by paint, however the description identifying the vessel as a U.S. Army Bridge-Erection Boat and the serial number of the vessel is visible. The cradle is included with the vessel. The vessel has been out of service for a few years and the condition and operation of the vessel cannot be confirmed.

The vessel type, based upon a design created by the Army Corps of Engineers after World War II, consists of two separate sections that can be easily assembled and disassembled to allow for easier transport. With a shallow draft and significant power and maneuverability resulting from the twin engines and propellers, these vessels helped with the assembly of pontoon bridges, ferry priority cargo, and complete other odd jobs as necessary in Europe after World War II and in the Vietnam War.

Vessel Serial No. 72-26

Detroit Diesel Engine Serial Nos. 3D0099344 and 3D0098582
