The Maritime History of the Great Lakes
Frank L. Pabst (Tug), 18 May 1895

      The yards of W. J. Hingston & Son, the tug builders being located near the foot of Jersey Street, are hard for newspapermen to get to at the rush of daily business, but there is business being done there right along. Perhaps the most important output this year by this firm, is the tug FRANK L. PABST. This tug was completed a few days ago, and is for the Carrol Bros. The PABST is 68 feet long, of 7 feet beam, and is 8 feet deep. An unusual part of her equipment, is that she is fitted with a fore and aft compound engine, the dimensions of which are 12 and 25 inches diameter by a 20 inch stroke. There are no tugs in Buffalo harbor at present with such machinery. The boiler of the PABST was built by Mr. Riter, is 5 feet 10 inches in diameter, and is designed to work at a pressure of 150 pounds to the square inch.
