The Travels of Tug 44

Rolf Williams - Ship Fuel Tanker

The Rolf Williams is a small tanker operated by Marine Oil Service Co. She carries diesel fuel and lube oil to refuel ships and has a capacity of 58,000 gallons.

Seen here, Rolf Williams is refueling a Car Carier ship in Newark Harbor. When you are that big, the gas station comes to you.

Always in a big hurry, the Rolf blows past us on her way to refuel a ship waiting at the Stapleton Anchorage.
