This veteran tug was built in 1908 by the Skinner Shipbuilding & Drydock Company as the S.O. Co. No. 19 for the Standard Oil Company. In 1916 she was renamed S.T. Co. No. 19. She was renamed Socony 19 in 1918. In 1943 the tug was repowered from steam to diesel. In 1947 she was renamed Esso Tug No. 4. The McAllister Towing & Transportation Company of New York, NY purchased the tug in 1953, where she was renamed McAllister 44. She was then renamed Roderick McAllister in 1955. Arthur J. Fournier acquired the tug in 1978, and she retained her name. In 1984, Selvick Marine Towing of Sturgeon Bay, WI purchased the tug and brought her to the Great Lakes. Her original pilothouse was removed on the delivery trip, and during refit she received the pilothouse from the tug Galway. She was renamed Carla Anne Selvick and entered service on Lake Michigan out of Sturgeon Bay. After over 25 years of service for Selvick, the tug was sold to a private party in Indiana Harbor, IN in 2012.

The Carla Anne Selvick is laid up in Indiana Harbor, but without her pilothouse, which was removed in 2012.
