New tugs, old names

Two tugs, new to the Twin Ports, arrived this afternoon, Tuesday, June 6, 2017. They were recently purchased by Heritage Marine and will be given the names of two tugs they just sold. Here the tugs are moving down the Duluth harbor on their way to the Heritage Marine dock in Superior. At left, the Fort Point leads the way; she will soon be renamed to Edward H. Just behind her is the new Nels J., formerly the Taurus.

    Most recent owner before acquired by Heritage Marine was Fournier Towing, Belfast Maine. Check for history (they’re already associated with Heritage).

    Aren’t these the two McAlister tugs??????
