NEW STEEL TUG GEORGIA WILL REPLACE HIBBARD
Capt. Philip Broderick, local manager of the Great Lakes Towing Company at Cleveland and Buffalo, arrived here yesterday. He expects the new steel tug GEORGIA, in Buffalo today to replace the old wooden tug HIBBARD, which has gone to the company's yard at Cleveland to be dismantled.
The GEOGIA is commanded by Capt. Frank Hartman of Tonawanda, and Robert Mason is chief engineer. The GEORGIA is a fine type of tug and will make eight steel tugs in commission at this port for the company.
The HIBBARD was a splendid tug in her way, but she has outlived her usefulness, said capt. Broderick. Her engine will be installed in a new steel hull.
