Further use may be made of the boiler. and it is possible that the engine may also prove to be in fair condition. The KEYSTONE was built at Buffalo in 1891 and has a keel length of 82 feet, 19 feet beam and 11 feet depth. Her gross measurement 95 tons and she was worth about $12,000. The tug had been withdrawn from service for the season on Monday.
