Background
Vessel History: HERCULES (built 1907; tugboat) was built by John H. Dialogue and Son at Camden, New Jersey, for the Shipowners' and Merchants' Tugboat Company's Red Stack fleet based in San Francisco, California. As an ocean-going tug, she towed barges, sailing ships, and log rafts between Pacific ports. In 1924, HERCULES was acquired by the Western Pacific Railroad Company to shuttle railroad car barges across San Francisco Bay until 1962. The California State Park Foundation acquired her for the San Francisco Maritime State Historic Park in 1975. The National Park Service took over the task of her restoration in 1977, and in 1986 she was designated a National Historic Landmark. HERCULES is exhibited as a museum ship at Hyde Street Pier, San Francisco, California as part of the San Francisco Maritime National Historical Park.
