Full Text

The tug PIER, building for the department of docks of New York, by the Union Dry Dock Company of Buffalo is a good lump of a boat. She is 160 feet long, has triple expansion engines and is housed all in with pilot house above the deck. This is better suited to the needs of New York harbor than the style in vogue here. She will not be launched for some time yet.- Buffalo Express

The Union Dry Dock Company of Buffalo has finished work on the steel tug PIER, built for dock construction work in New York harbor. The tug left Buffalo Tuesday and will go to the coast by way of the Welland canal and St Lawrence river.
