Big Toot evolved from the Lil Toot program which started in 2004. Lil Toot was a 26-foot Crosby launch built to look like Lil Toot, the baby tug featured in the popular children's book. Because Lil Toot was a small boat and New York Harbor is a big body of water, Big Toot, a larger and more sturdy boat has taken its place.
