Tug Ohio Christening, June 21, 2019
On June 21, 2019, the Maumee River was the host to a unique dual christening ceremony. The Museum Tug Ohio (background) was re-dedicated as a museum ship and formally retired from active service and it’s replacement, the new Tug Ohio (foreground), was christened in it’s new home port. The new Ohio can be seen working up and down the Maumee River today and is just the latest in the long history of tugboats in the Port of Toledo.
