10/15 - Tug Huntington Re-floated - Franz VonRiedel

Last weekend, the 90-foot harbor tug HUNTINGTON was dug out of the shallow harbor waters of Saugatuck, MI and prepped for a delivery to South Chicago where it has gone out on lease to Calumet River Fleeting. The harbor had silted in to only 5-feet of water in some places which was quite a challenge for a 300-ton tugboat drawing 12-feet of water. Clearwater Marine assisted with a towboat and crane barge, winching the HUNTINGTON over the high spots. Earlier in the year, the tug had been donated to the Northeastern Maritime Historical Foundation by Ben and Sarah Fogg of Holland, MI. HUNTINGTON was built in 1951 and spent most of its life working in and around the New York City area for the Red Star Line and later Kosnac before coming into the Great Lakes in 2004. The 1600-HP tug will be refit over winter and enter service for Selvick in the spring.
