They actually have a coast guard contract to change out the cannon turrets on the 270' cutters at Sector Boston. They really just do odd jobs. They helped replace pilings at Long Wharf last year as well. Its not a profit-making company, but Doug is in a situation where it really doesn't need to be money making. They were at one time one of the major players in the harbor before BTT was bought by Reinauer and the Tug-opoly began. Foss will make things very, very interesting. Jake Tibbetts is not a happy man.

I didn't know the Cynthia still ran. Lately I've seen the Brandywine in Providence and even NYC on AIS. Do they do any regular work, other than the fireworks barges?

I wouldn't say she's in long term layup, its more that her company is in layup. Doug Dellaporta's Eastern Towboat doesn't do much work anymore, but Doug has a love for railroad tugs and thus owns a bunch. The Cynthia Nicole is the most active out of the fleet, that and Brandywine. Doug and the Cynthia push the New Year's fireworks barge every year and also bring the 4th of July fireworks barges up the Charles with his workboat Pilgrim IV. Doug also towed one of his deckbarges to Newport RI for the 2004 Tallships so that Boston Harbor Cruises could embark passengers for their tallship cruises. The history of the tug herself I'm unsure of, I'll see what I can find.
