Foss/Constellation's David Foss holding station off Logan airport waiting for an inbound ship. A fairly little guy, especially compared to the AMNAV 97 footers. This is the only boat I managed to shoot, however they used Phoenix, Cygnus, David Foss and I think the Orion. I had to cut short the picture taking to drive. First time I've seen this many Constellation boats working a ship.

No idea, but I'll see if I can find out as I'm in the process of seeing if I can get hired by Constellation. It certainly doesnt seem like a ship assist boat, but it worked the bow of the ship that came in today (I totally forgot the name). They have been taking the David all kinds of places in the harbor that are generally a no-no for tugs, so I'm assuming she's a relatively shallow draft. I was baffled when I saw tugs coming out of Marina bay the other night, but then I realized how small they are compared to the other boats in the harbor. The Phoenix and Cygnus are real bruiser tugs, 97 feet long with huge EMD can hear them coming from a ways off, they sound like jets. I hope they keep 'em in Boston, to be honest.

I see you finally had the opportunity to catch her, good work. Any idea how much HP this tug has? Doesnt seem like the type of tug to do ship assist.
