YTL 431

No IDs for this one, either. I believe it's owned by the same person(s) as Northwind and El Primero. The 431 is painted over, but still visible. "YTL" is US Navy-ese for Yard Tug, Little (no joke). If my info is correct, this was built in Bellingham, WA in 1944.

  • Great shot & info Scott - A bit small for you!
    • I'm interested in nearly anything that floats, but I exhausted most of the "usual suspects" (resident utility boats and many fishing vessels) quite a while ago. That, or I'm still working on timing to catch them. The Panamax and Handy-size vessels are the most likely subjects for new shots, but there are lot of repeaters even with those!
  • Nice one Scott, nice work vessel
