Her length is 43 feet; beam 12 feet, hold 6 feet 3 inches. She has a 13 x 14 inch engine made by Knight & Sisson; and her steel boiler of 55 inches shell and 108 inches length comes from the shop of Donaldson & Howard, and is larger than usual for canal tugs. The boat was built by O'Grader & Maher, and is well built and fine looking. She is handled by Captain Isaac Souter.
