The Maritime History of the Great Lakes
A. A. Turner (Tug), 19 Jun 1862

Full Text

It will be remembered by most of our readers that during the past winter a tug was built at Trenton, some 14 miles below this city, for Capt. Edwards, late commander and managing owner of the stmr. BAY CITY. This tug was, a week or two since, towed up to this city to receive her fit out, and is now in readiness to commence business in the line of towing, and, from what we have seen of her, bids fair to secure a liberal share of patronage. She has an excellent model, has great power and of good size, and will doubtless, be well adapted for the business she is intended for. Her length is 123' x 19' x 8' 10". She is called the A. A. TURNER, after the name of her builder and architect and a gentleman of great experience in the line of his profession. Captain Edwards commands her, an individual favorably known by everyone on the lakes. Repy upon it everything so far as he is concerned, will be conducted in a business-like manner. Mr. Isaac Saunders is the Engineer, and in that capacity always keeps a surplus of water in the boiler, and pays good attention otherwise, she never can blow.
