SPS-52 Captain Luis - NYS Canal Corp.

In this photo from 2007, SPS-52 Captain Luis, a crane barge, called a "Self-Propelled Scow (SPS)", pulls tree limbs from the canal. A Buoy Boat is tied alongside.

2014: SPS-52 has been refurbished, including a new larger house ...seen here tied to a dock for the weekend.

2014: SPS-52 is still used for logging operations, and as a deck barge.
