09/19/2013 1241 Views — 10 Features

The Admiral Dewey, also known as the Georgetown and today as the Helen McAllister, is a 113 feet (34 m) tugboat built in 1900 at the Burlee Drydock in Port Richmond, New York. She is currently part of the South Street Seaport Museum in Manhattan, New York and docked at Pier 16 in the East River. She was built with a 900 horsepower (670 kW) triple expansion compound steam engine which was replaced with a diesel engine after WWII. She towed coal barges to refuel ships in the harbor. In 1955, she was sold to a Charleston, South Carolina tugboat company. In the 1980s, the McAllister tugboat company of New York purchased the company and brought the renamed Helen McAllister back to New York harbor. She helped dock tall ships during Op Sail 1992
