YTM 750 Hackensack
Hackensack was built in 1952 for the US Army and designated LT 2089. Like all Army tugs she was named after an American Indian Tribe. In 1958 the Hackensack was transferred to the Navy and re-designated YTM 750 (Yard Tug Medium). In 1976 she was leased to The Electric Boat Division of General Dynamics in Groton, Connecticut. Here she was fitted with under-hull fenders and used to move submarines to and from the Electric Boat Company and the Navy submarine base in New London, CT.
