Moored proudly on the waterfront of Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin the tug John Purves is the pride of the Door County Maritime Museum. Lovingly restored, she now serves as a floating macro-exhibit and shrine to tug sailors everywhere. Visitors to her decks enjoy a unique docent guided tour through essentially every space on this massive tug, magically transporting them back to the early 1960s and Purves' glory days as one of the most famous wrecking tugs to sail the Great Lakes. The profit from the sale of this book supports the preservation and celebration of the maritime history and heritage of the Door Peninsula through the work of the Door County Maritime Museum. Please enjoy this remarkable story about my grandfather, his company, his friends, and the rugged ships that served them so well. - John Roen Asher CEO, Roen Salvage Co.
