Fish Tugs of the Greatest Lake
MY SWEETHEART 228185 Built by Burger Boat Co. in 1928, for Henry W. Smith, Waukegan, Ill. The 50 ft. x 12 ft. wood hulled vessel was equipped with a 60-70 Kahlenberg oil engine. In the 1940s the boat was owned by Everett LaFond, Two Rivers, and operated by Knudsen Bros. In 1965 the bare hull was laying in the harbor at Two Rivers, the entire cabin burned off.
