Peck & Masters are building four vessels and a tug at Cleveland. Three of the vessels are intended to be precisely like the NAOMI. They are for Lockwood & Kinne and other parties in Buffalo. They will be about 430 tons each, 140 feet on deck, 30 feet beam, and 11 1/2 feet hold. The fourth is for Stephen V.R. Watson of Buffalo. Its capacity will be about 500 tons. It will be 150 feet on deck, 30 feet beam, 12 feet hold. Two of the above vessels will be launched, fully rigged and complete about the 20th. They are all very handsome vessels. The tug named the E.M. PECK, is for the Detroit and St. Clair Rivers. It is 112 feet long, 20 feet beam, and 10 feet hold. The bow is very sharp, and the model beautiful. It is intended to be one of the swiftest tugs in the river service. All the above vessels will be ready for the spring business.
