"The Steam Tug is a historical read about the evolution of the steam engine and
steam tug. Developed and patented in England in 1737, the author takes the
reader to the end of the roaring 1850's in New York Harbor. It was not until
1807 that Robert Fulton introduced the fi rst commercially successful steamboat
the ""Clermont"" on the Hudson River in New York. In the early 1800's sailing
ships entering the harbor would lie at anchor in Sandy Hook for days and
weeks waiting for wind to power them into the harbor so they could offl oad
their cargo.
Due to the expansion of shipping and commerce during the mid 1800's, sailing
ships realized that small steam ferries operating between Staten Island and lower
Manhattan could tow them into local wharfs to discharge their cargo and begin
loading domestic goods to distant ports abroad saving valuable time.
With the advent of large clipper ships, increased commerce and advanced steam
boats, would lead to the rise and birth of a new industry, The Towing Business."
