1-Kiisla-12-89-BW.jpg (81332 bytes)
Tanker Kiisla docked at Burnette Trucking in late December, 1989 for Coast Guard inspection after grounding outside Buffalo.
  The tug Nickelena was once a common sight around Buffalo Harbor. Back in the mid-90's the Navy had decided to go with privately contracted tugs for ship handling and she was transferred to the Buffalo District of the Army Corps for their use around the lakes. She could often be seen around town with the derrick boat McCauley that her sister boat Cheraw now pushes. I was able to tour the boat a few days after she arrived in Buffalo.
