NY 1921 DS - Chug - A - Lug V
Found in deep water off Oswego NY this boat should have been easy to identify. Dispite its condition being very poor the boats NYS registration number is plainly legible on one of the few walls that remain standing. Another clue is the boats name "Chug - A - Lug V" which is just barely legible on the stern. The boat appears to be a house boat but in its present state we can not be sure.
Several attempts to identify this boat using the NYS registration number met with dead ends. In addition searches in several local newspapers did not result in any leads. Any information that would help identify this boat would be welcome.
