Standard Oil Company No. 16 is a historic harbor tugboat located at Mariners Harbor, Staten Island, New York. She was built in 1907 by the Skinner Shipbuilding and Dry Dock Company of Baltimore, Maryland for the Standard Oil Company. She has heavy steel frames and deck beams. She is 100 feet in length, 23 feet in beam and 11.2 feet in depth. She is registered at 175 gross tons. She has an original wooden pilot house and the engine room dates to 1953-1954 when converted from steam to diesel. At that time, Standard Oil sold the tug to the McAllister Towing and Transportation Company and she was renamed John E. McAllister.[2][3]
