Photo Details
Photographer:Brian Maniglia [View profile]Title:Thornton BrothersAdded:Mar 06, 2007
Photo Category: Tugs
Outbound Delaware River 3/3/07. Ex Cissi based out of Wilmington DE. Now sold and renamed I think. Thanks to TugFanatic for some info.

She was originally built as John E. Matton. In fact the last John E. Matton built in Cohoes, N.Y. before the yard was sold to Turecamo. Matton sold her to Morania Oil Tanker Corp., and she was renamed Morania No. 12. Morania sold her to Reinauer, and she was renamed Cissi Reinauer. Reinauer got rid of her when the ruling came out that petroleum barges must be handled by twin screw tugs.

Thanks to TugPower for the info above and Tonylast for additional info also.
