The "EDNA G" is a tugboat who worked the Great Lakes. She was the last coal-fired, steam-engine tug in service on the lakes when she was retired in 1981.cite web| title =Water Transportation: Edna G. (tugboat)| publisher =Minnesota Historical Society| url =http://nrhp.mnhs.org/property_overview.cfm?PropertyID=5| accessdate =2007-10-16] Her home port being Two Harbors, Minnesota, she primarily moved ships and barges carrying iron ore and taconite from the Mesabi Range and other smaller sites in the Iron Range region of northeast Minnesota. The ship was named for the daughter of J. L. Greatsinger, president of the Duluth & Iron Range Railroad Company.
