Wow, I had no idea thay had also saved the a-frame of the engine as well......From what I was told by NYC tugboat authority Ron Parisi, there are still a few places inside the hull where chips of original NYC-applied green paint still exists!

I have heard that the hull of this tug is cut out.  That is why it sits the way it does.  Does anyone know if that is true.  Or is the tug fully intack.

Yes, it is cut out to make the boat a "waterline model" if you will......There are no "insides" except for the parts above deck from what I understand.

There are local people on the Cape who are in the progress of trying to preserve Tugboat #16.  
 
Key to the preservation are:
 
1. Coordination of all those involved in the tugboat's preservation.
2. Funding, donations and donation of services.
3. Physical weight and engineering requirements for the move.
4. Site to move the tug to either a permanent or a temporary destination.
 
The Bourne Society of Historical Preservation has started dialogue to accomplish some of these goals.
 
The Hoboken Museum is willing to give a home to the tugboat but has no available funding.
 
A house mover is being contacted to give some idea of the cost to move it.
 
WCVB-TV may be able to do a story on the tugboat.
 
Financial grant applications need to be filed.
 
The Cape Codder newspaper is in favor of preservation.

HA!!!!!! Does anybody actually know anything about the history of this tug since it's been sitting there? Back in the early 80's,most likely August of '84,just before I got married,I saw this tug,[or one EXACTLY like it] In Rhode Island,but at the time,it was painted as the Lehigh Valley tug "Wilkes Barre"..Anybody know anything about it,or better yet,have any pics of it then?...

This tug has since been scrapped.  It was originally salvaged from Wittes in Staten Island in the early 80'.s I have a photo and its sitting int he backround tied to the Brooklyn Army Terminal.  
 
The original Wilkes Barre went to Moran in the 60s and was renamed the Julia C. Moran.  It is now in Mexico.
