This tug was built in 1982 by Bay Shipbuilding as the Amoco Michigan for Amoco Oil. She was renamed Michigan in 1985, and eventually sold to Keystone Great Lakes Inc. In 2010, the Michigan was sold to Chicago Marine Asset Management, and the following year was acquired by U.S. Oil of Appleton, WI. She is managed by Andrie Inc. of Muskegon, MI.
