JW knew two different boats named CRUISER, both of these boats visited the Elizabeth Marine Ways numerous times and both are mentioned in the journals. The first CRUISER was built in 1890 and first visited the Ways in 1907, she was a steel hulled boat.  The second CRUISER was built in 1923 at the Elizabeth Marine Ways under the direction of JW. 

 

Steamer CRUISER  built 1890 with a steel hull   The DAVE WOOD is up river from the CRUISER. Photo was taken prior to 1912 as this was when the DAVE WOOD was taken out of service.   Postcard dated 1912

Read about the first CRUISER visiting the Ways twice during 1907, February 1907 and  April 1907, she was an all steel boat. She also had repair work on March 26, 1910.

The two photos above show the Steamer CRUISER at the Elizabeth Marine Ways while still under construction. Pump Boat 80 is mentioned as being at the EMW on January 29, 1923 for general repairs. The photo above right shows Pump Boat #80 with the Steamer Crusier still under construction, as shown by the entry of February 16, 1923.  This photo was probably taken during February 1923 when both these boats were at EMW.
