|"Heading Out" Oil on panel - 12x16 - SOLD|
Moran Tugs commenced operations in 1860 when founder Michael Moran opened a towing brokerage, Moran Towing and Transportation Company, in New York Harbor. The company was transformed from a brokerage into an owner-operator of tugboats in 1863, when it purchased a one-half interest in the tugboat Ida Miller for $2,700. Moran Tugs can be seen in the Baltimore Harbor on most days of the year. This painting depicts a tug heading out of the bay below Thomas Point light house.
