One thought on “Chuckie Joe

  1. This was my dads tugboat – he was the original owner – his company was the Island Freight Company and it worked out of the Toronto Harbour – it was named after my brother who died in 1951 of leukemia at the age if six – my dad’s name was Carl Watts and my name is Carl Watts Jr – if you would like to get a hold of me call 905 471 3950.
