Hoga tugboat - Arkansas Inland Maritime Museum

A well-preserved, largely unaltered example of this once-common type of craft, the USS Hoga is of exceptional significance in American history as the only known surviving yard craft present at Pearl Harbor during the Japanese attack on the U.S. Pacific Fleet on December 7, 1941. While not engaged in combating the enemy, this craft performed heroic service, extinguishing fires on burning battleships and other vessels in the harbor and rescuing wounded seamen from the oily waters of Battleship Row.
