Description:

Former tugboat seen laid-up, and in near-derelict condition along the Napa River in Vallejo, California.

This vessel actually has quite the significant history, delivered in 1926 as the US Coast Guard cutter NAUGATUCK. In 1935, it was transferred to the US Navy, and designated as YP 56, remaining in Navy service through World War II. After being sold in 1946, the vessel entered oilfield service, working as an early for of an offshore supply vessel. In the 1970's, it was acquired by Oscar Niemeth Towing of the Bay Area, and brought west for use as a tugboat. That career continued until the early 2000's, when the tug was laid-up. Any hopes for a return to work have since been likely dashed by the introduction of the US Coast Guard's Subchapter M rules for towing vessels.
