Ken Boothe Sr.

IMO : ???

Build : 2011 by Donjon Shipbuilding and Repair Hull – Port Erie, Pa in the USA, nr 108

Bowsprite & Tugster both tipped me about this strange baby-blue giraffe necked tug, independently of eachother & exactly around the same time. And that was even during the building of this tug, that couldn’t bode well for the future. They were right, look at the above & below pictures…..damn, where did this whole design process go wrong?

I guess that must have been somewhere in the beginning…..haven’t these guys read this blog?? And why the blue? It soooo makes it look like a softie tug.

2 more pictures, from 2 other angles: just to show off the complete ugly package.

    Ha Ha looks like an airport control tower! Any pics of the barge it pushes?

  2. lauren says:

    i love our softie tug it took alot to build it from scratch but none of yall would know that.

  3. Karen says:

    You are full of it and I like the color.

  4. nick says:

    i worked on building that tug…it is anything but ugly. i am proud of what we are getting accomplished down there

  5. nickl says:

    Looks arnt everything. This tug has almost 11,000 hp..Most powerful tug on the great lakes.

  6. Jill says:

    the tug was named after my uncle i could care less what it looks like it was named after a wonderful man RIP Uncle Dale

  7. Kenneth Boothe Jr. says:

    It is clearly evident that Seabart and Stuart confirm that ignorance is bliss. If you don’t know the history of the color, design or shape then you are better off not offering your opinion.

  8. Kenneth Boothe Jr. says:

    Sorry about that Seabart. I just read WHO is WHO and now i understand your pathetic situation. Good Luck!

  9. Jill says:

    I agree KJ if someone doesnt understand a complete concept behind a design then they are better off offering no opinion @ all its best not to show your complete ignorance all @ once gradually show it off a little @ a time! S&S

  10. SeaBart says:

    KJ: thank you for your sympathy for my pathetic situation but I can assure you that I’m very happy with it. And in some cases ignorance is indeed bliss.

  11. bm says:

    That tug is a piece of shit and it is not completed. Plus there is already an estimated 3000+hrs of rework on the barge. Erie has few qualified shipbuilders and management is a joke. KBJ, karma is a bitch glad my dad’s name isn’t on that hunk of crap.

  12. That tug has a twin built about 10 years earlier. It’s name is Joyce L. VanEnkevort.

  13. Jeff says:

    Ken Boothe Sr. and Joyce L. VanEnkevort are far from twins.

  14. Jennifer Boothe says:

    Screw you SeaBart and bm, you have no clue. bm I must know you, if you have a problem with KBJ then I would personally like to address them for you, he is and will always be a very talented ship builder, a wonderful friend, son, husband and father.
