The tug METAMORA built by Peck & Masters, at their yard in this city, has arrived at Detroit, and the Tribune pays the following just compliment to her builders.
The METAMORA was built at Cleveland for Harman, Hackett & Co., designed and modelled by E.M. Peck and constructed by Peck & Masters, under the supervision of Capts. Coe and Hackett. She measures 300 tons burthen, custom house measurement, having a length of 125 ft., beam 25 ft., and a depth of hold 13 ft. If superior timber, massive strength of build, and beautiful model, with great power of machinery, are the essential requisites of a good tug, then the METAMORE is a tug for those qualities are there combined. The METAMORA was built for towing purposes on the lakes and rivers, yet she will have no superior if required for wrecking expeditions. She is commanded by Capt. R.J. Hackett, a life long sailor, who with his beautiful steamer, we wish every possible success.
