A day in the life of a Tug Captain


In 2014, a friend of mine wrote a wonderful blog post about the Tug DeWitt Clinton and its Captain David Starkweather.  She originally interviewed him for an Albion Alumni Foundation “Where are they Now” story.

She found the Tug and David’s job as a captain so interesting that she wrote an extended story about a day in the life of a tugboat captain.  Many photos are included of Tug DeWitt Clinton pushing a G4 (Gradall) from Hulberton to Albion.

With permission and sincere thanks, I am linking Kim’s story below.  I hope you will take the time to read it and view her outstanding photos. I think you will be amazed at what this mighty Tug is capable of and how proud this captain is of the DeWitt Clinton.
