The Maritime History of the Great Lakes
Charles G. Curtiss (Tug), 30 Apr 1884

Full Text

      The new tug CHARLES G. CURTIS, built by O'Grady & Maher for R.E. Whitwell, came out yesterday and visited Central Wharf, the headquarters of the harbor tugs. Though not so large as most of them she makes a good appearance and will be a credit to the builders, whose reputation as tug builders is second to none.
      The CURTISS is 54 ft. long, 13 ft. beam and 7 ft. hold. Her engine is 14 by 14, built by David Bell and her boiler steel, 5 by 5 1/2, built by Riter. She will not run in either line, but will do harbor towing on her own account. She already has the contract for doing the towing on the breakwater excursions and will begin work soon.
