The Travels of Tug 44

Tug Paul T. Moran

Tug Paul T. Moran is specially equipped for pushing oil barges. She has 7,200 horsepower and the raised pilothouse to see over the barges.

Tug Paul T. Moran is seen here with her nose inserted into her barge's notch, which is about the only way one is ever likely to see her. She is owned and operated by Moran Towing.
