Tug AID photo from S&D Reflector March 1972.  Of interest is that this boat had only 48 horsepower of engine power.

The Tug AID is first mentioned by JW as doing work at the Elizabeth Marine Ways on June 6, 1913.  The only other mention is when she burned at West Elizabeth on March 18, 1914 along with the Tug WASP.  This was the second time these two boats burned together, the first time was on June 15, 1912 and is not mentioned by JW in his journal.
