    Great tug!!! Nice photo! Thanks! Looks a lot like the tug my maternal grandfather Percy Whynott of 27 highland st east GLO had in the inner harbor. According to records, he was employed at Hall Tug & Barge, 88 Broad St, Boston, for a long time.

    Even though he could not swim, he. apparently jumped onto ice floes to rescue a fisherman who had fallen into Gloucester Harbor. Rounder if anyone has heard of him.
    He is bured in Woodlawn Cemetery, Everett Ma, with his wife, and three of his children, Rita, David, and Florence. The late Douglas Whynott is there also.

    Very nice workhorse of the harbors – like the timex commerical takes a licking and keeps on ticking! But everything needs a little fixing to stay fine tuned:-)
