These granite blocks were put in place around the year 1806,
And today they serve the same purpose they did those many years ago.
They are the building materials of our nations 3rd largest graving dock and let me tell you, they don't build them like this any more.
As our tug sits high and dry in this historic Brooklyn shipyard, I can't help but think of the history of this awesome place.
Standing under the hull of our tug and looking around this place has the feel of a Italian Colosseum.
The now famous PT 109 was fitted in this yard.
Our tug sits in the same spot where our nations first Iron Clad ship was fitted for war.
That was in 1862.
This place just reeks of history.
