The new patrol fire boat, David Sutton, for Duluth harbor, has arrived there. The Sutton is 20 tons register, and was built in Buffalo in 1880, and rates as B1. She handles three standard streams and as a shoal water boat well meets the requirements of Duluth harbor. In the spring the authorities expect to supplement this fire boat with a more powerful, though perhaps not more efficient boat for the service.

- Item Type:
- The SUTTON (US#157010) was built by Buffalo tugmeister George Notter as a yacht. She was 54 feet in length, 10½ feet beam and only 4½ feet depth, so she could probably sail uphill on wet grass.
