Balize (Tug), U2714, 16 Jul 1867
- Full Text
The fine steam tug formerly known as the MARY GRANDY, which has been in port the past few days is, we learn, about to undergo some important improvements in her machinery, and will also receive a new boiler. When these important changes shall have taken place her towing powers will be greatly excelled, and being of the larger class of tugs, she will have but few if any competitors on the rivers. While on the seaboard she rendered very important services, and being comparitively new, her career will doubtless be as profitable as heretofore.
