Specifications and Dimensions
Length on waterline
Hull & deck
old-growth Douglas fir
powered by a two-cylinder Stanley Steamer auto engine
74,000 pounds or 37 tons (fuel tanks not totally full)
*Note: These are a measure of the cargo capacity of a ship’s hull below the decks,
based on volume (cubic feet). They are not particularly meaningful for a tug boat which does not carry cargo on board. The gross tonnage includes all area below deck, while the net tonnage excludes space for engines/machinery, fuel tanks, crew’s quarters, etc.
Neither measure has any direct relationship to the actual weight of the vessel.
