Description

The Cormorant was built in 1941.  In 1949 she was renamed the Russell 4 and was sold to the Newton Creek Towning Company of New York.  Merrit, Chapman & Scott repurchased her and renamed her the Cormorant. The tug sank was swamped by a large wave near Oswego, NY after completion of work in the St. Lawrence River.   The crew were saved by hanging on to a tractor tire before being rescued.
