 The George W. Washburn was launched by the Cornell Steamboat Company to move barges and cargo like stones, sand, and bricks up and down the Hudson River between Albany and New York City. 

 It was, during her early years, considered the fastest tug on the Hudson. Since it took on paying passengers, its appearance was kept up. It was said that a Cornell Steamboat could be noticed from great distances by the yellow and black colour of the smoke stacks.
