Historic tugs and more
Thanks to downriver-neighbor Dock for alerting me to this fleet of boats on the river.
A flotilla of historic working vessels will be traveling the Hudson River and visiting riverside communities in coming weeks. Tugs, fireboat, steam launches, canal schooner, dutch barge, etc. will be featured. I am particularly interested in the lighthouse tender Lilac. The floating exhibition will stop at the Rondout in Kingston, NY on September 19th & 20th. This is part of New York’s Quadricentennial celebration. The public is invited to tour and ride aboard many of these historic boats. More info—>
