She is 100(ft) long with a single deck, curved stem and elliptical stern.She was then acquired by the Mobil Oil Corporation and
renamed the "Mobil 11".
When environmental laws changed and prohibited the transport of petroleum by single screw tugs the "Mobil 11" was sold off
and acquired by Gellatly and renamed the "Christine Gellatly".
Kosnac Floating Derrick, Corporation acquired her and renamed her the "Gotham".
But, in light of a multitude of mechanical issues and she was put up for sale.
