The Travels of Tug 44

Tug Governor Roosevelt - NYS Canal Corp

Seen here on the Erie Canal, Tug Governor Roosevelt does a lot of heavy pushing. Seen here after a long day of pushing barges of drebris and trees retrieved from the canal after the Flood of 2006.

Tug Governor Roosevelt in the Lyons Drydocks. Her hull is heavily reinforced, as befits her original role as an icebreaker. This photo by Jason LaDue.
