Great Lakes Towing Tugboats

During part of our tour of the Rouge River, we got to see where the Great Lakes Towing tugs were docked.
 These are tugboats that I have seen before but it's always nice to see them since I don't get to see that often.  The first tug we ran across was the Wyoming.  She was built in 1929 and is powered by a diesel engine.
 Next up was the Idaho.  She was built in 1931 and I believe is currently undergoing maintenance.
 Another view of the Idaho.
 The tug Superior.  She was built in 1912.
 She is kind of a neat looking tug.
And a shot of all three of them.
