Pictured as: the Morgan (Tucker Roy Marine) Photo by: Glenn Raymo

Built in 1965, by the Pacific Coast Engineering Company (PACECO) of Alameda, California (hull #209) as the Sea Wolf for Crowley Marine Services Incorporated of San Francisco, California.

She was the third Daring class tug constructed by the Pacific Coast Engineering Company for Crowley Marine Services Incorporated.

Designed by Naval Architect Phil Spaulding, the Daring class was the first class of tugs constructed for Crowley Marine Services. The design featured a simplified engine room. As well as gauges, alarms, and controls for the engine room in the wheelhouse. This allowed the company to reduce the manning of the tug from twelve men, to eight, in an effort to give Crowley Marine an advantage over their competition.

In 2002, the tug was acquired by Robbins Maritime Incorporated of Norfolk, Virginia. Where she was renamed as the Bay Eagle.

In 2002, she was acquired by Hartley Marine Services Incorporated of East Boothbay, Maine. Where she was renamed as the Narragansett.

In 2013, Hartley Marine Services was acquired by Winslow Marine Incorporated of Southport, Maine. Where the tug retained her name.

In 2015, the tug was acquired by Tucker Roy Marine Towing and Salvage Incorporated of Mattapoisett, Massachusetts. Where she was renamed as the Morgan.
