The Maritime History of the Great Lakes
Robert H. Cook (Tug), 25 May 1882

Full Text

At 5:16 yesterday the iron tug which has been built at Bell's ship yard on Evans slip, slid down the ways into the water where she now floats. The launch, which was a very successful one, was viewed by a large crowd of people, the roofs and every available place about the yard being covered with spectators. The new tug was built for the New York & Lake Champlain Tranportation Co., and is a handsome boat. She is 110 ft. long, 22 ft. beam, and 9 ft. hold. She has one pair of inverted compound engines, with high and low pressure cylinders 20 and 34 inches in diameter respectively. The stroke is 25 inches. The boiler is 14 1/2 ft. long and 8 1/2 ft. in diameter. The boat will be named the ROBERT H. COOK and when completed will cost about $28,000.
