Dave Debney comments (7 Dec 2014): "A bunch of us from work that are all retired have been going for coffee every Wednesday morning for the last six years. A couple of weeks ago, we somehow got started on a discussion of where our tugboats from the Pulp and Paper Mill in Dryden ended up. Hauling log booms on the lake and river had ended in 1981. We knew most had been sold between 1981 and 1984 but had no idea where they went or what became of them. There were five tugs, the Anglo Duchess, Dryden 2, Dryden 3, Dryden 4 and the Pine Bay. Duchess was the largest and actually replaced the three Dryden tugs for hauling booms on the lake. Dryden 2, 3 and 4 were mainly used on the river after Duchess’s arrival. Pine Bay, which no one seems to have any information on, now sits on the river bank in front of the mill as a monument."
