Great Lakes' ATBs are a bit different from the near coastal variety. A friend of mine is the 4th generation owner of this company.

On board the Door County Maritime Museum's tug boat John Purvis. I must add that all of the restoration and maintenance work is done by volunteers. Some of the best that I have ever seen.

Main engines' controls and our very informative guide/docent.



Main engines, GM 12-567s. That's 12 cylinders of 567 cubic inches, EACH!



Port main engine name plate.



Gen Set with 6-71 Detroit Diesel.

Those EMDs are absolutely beautiful. We drove around the peninsula on Monday and I completely forgot about doing the tug tour.

That inline 6-71 is the same as what the Fireboat uses for its generator. Its two main engines are 8v92s.

Thanks for posting the pics! Great restoration.

Great photos. Looks like a MKIV Jetta fest though! What was the actual mix? Anyone know?

Maybe those with CR cars didn't want to add miles before the buyback!

There were more CR cars than MKIV. There were more in the back lot.

I must be the odd ball. I took the long way home. The total trip was around 3K.

There were a few BMW diesels there too. A 535d (mine), 2 335d's, and an E70 X5 35d.

My trip ended up being 2,300 miles and a little extra, which undoubtedly ate into our buyback/fix amount. It was worth it, though... great trip in a great car.

Here are just a few of the 153 photos that I uploaded. The photos were taken by Steve Reinke, so if you want any photos in higher resolution for yourself, let me know and I'll put you in touch with Steve.
