Boat History / Other Notes:
The original history is still being researched; it was either built for the Army or for Gulf Oil depending on various sources.

It was definitely used as a working tug on the Mississippi until it was relocated to Long Beach, CA in 1980 via the Panama Canal. It changed owners a number of times since then and has been used as a live-aboard intermittently in recent years.
