This tug was built in 1927 by the American Shipbuilding Company of Lorain, OH as the Rogers City for U.S. Steel’s Michigan Limestone Corporation. In 1956, the Rogers City was converted to diesel and renamed Dolomite. In 1981 she was sold to the Seaway Towing Company of Sault Ste. Marie, MI, where the Dolomite was renamed Chippewa. She was repowered in 1981 by Seaway Towing. In 1990 she was sold to the Great Lakes Towing Company of Cleveland, OH, and renamed Missouri. Missouri is still based in Sault Ste. Marie, providing ship assist and icebreaking services on the St. Marys River.
