Description:  
Built in 1897 by Tacoma Shipyard, this vessel was originally intended to be a wooden, steam passenger vessel. Plans changed and she began her career as the tug Oscar B. The Oscar B worked in the Puget Sound area until 1911. In 1913 the Rouse Towing Company bought her, did a complete overhaul and she was renamed the Rouse. She worked until 1925 when she was given another major over-haul. She was renamed Wallace Foss in 1945 and continued working the waters of the Pacific Northwest. Wallace Foss was a working tugboat through March 1971. She has been privately held in her retirement and most recently has been converted to a cruising and live aboard vessel in Newport, Rhode Island.
