New York Pushboat Li'l Rip
« on: November 13, 2017, 15:23:38 »
Fellow Members:

A number of years ago, when I was much more active on the YAHOO Tug Group, I was involved in a discussion about the towboat Lil' Rip.  Although I have saved quite a few photos from before and after her being repainted, I do not have any information regarding her length, beam and draft, as a minimum, as I would like to build a model.  I would greatly appreciate it if anyone has that information or could point me to a link.  I have already tried the Tug Enthusiasts Society Page and Dick's Towboat Gallery without success.

Thank you,
Pete Glor

Lil' Rip is owned by Thomas J. Feeney Enterprises of NY, and used as their yard tug

Try contacting them direct. If you explain what you are doing, they may be able to help.
