Urger, originally named H.J. Dornbos, is a historic canal tugboat located at Waterford in Saratoga County, New York. She was built in 1901 by Johnson Brothers Shipyard and Boiler Works of Ferrysburg, Michigan. She was purchased for service on the New York State Barge Canal system in 1922 and was in regular use until the 1980s. She was altered in several stages through 1949. She is 73 feet 5 inches in length, 14 feet 9 inches in beam and 9 feet in depth. She is registered at 45 gross tons. She has a molded steel frame, deck beams, and riveted plates. In 1991 the Urger was reactivated "to educate school children and adults about the importance of New York’s historic Canal System." As of 2013 the Urger is "the flagship vessel in the New York State Canal Corporation’s fleet." Urger was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2001.
