*Morania No. 6.* 262494.
Built 1951 as Orange, TX, by Levingston SBCorp.
hull no. 471, as *Bill Endter.* Later *Pamela,* *James D.,* and *Fright.*

The Tug FRIGHT was built in 1951 for Morania Oil Tanker Corp. as the "BILL ENDTER". Later changed to "MORANIA No 6". I to would be interested in finding out what is going on with her.

Looks like not much! But I was fascinated to learn something about its history. The coastlines of NYC are littered with boats like this (though few are tugs). I would usually just accept the mystery. But learning is so much better!

Now if we could only track down the fellas that abandoned it and all those other boats to seep oil into the water table!

tetanus shot?

brad: 13th Jan 2010 - 20:57 GMT

any more information on this vessel?

gradmom0708: 13th Jan 2010 - 23:54 GMT

Being from Calif., I want to know, how does the snowy Ice crack that way? YES, Learning about How they got there & HOW they became Forgotton is the KEY to prevention of Others being abandonded.

i would love to rescue this old tug

brad: 19th Jan 2010 - 15:33 GMT

would anyone be interested in rescuing this tug? please e-mail me:

The frozen movement of the water is very nice. It reminds me of the sunken Amtrack tracks across America. Generations of ignorant people dumping car batteries and tires and oil. Thanks Grampa! Rescuing it? How? why? where?

Peter: 19th Jan 2010 - 19:53 GMT

im not sure that theres all that much left to be rescued, even if someone had the inclination and money to do so...

Bill Endter: 15th Mar 2011 - 00:43 GMT

The Bill Endter was named after my father and I was present at its launching. have pictures of it's christening
