USS Pawcatuck AO-108


The photos on this page were donated by Mr. David Willis of Phoenix, Az.

Pictures taken on a trip to see the "Dead Fleet" in May 1999

Mr. Willis contacted me with the question - "Could this be your ship?"

Can anybody identify the ships for sure ?

Update 1/7/00 - Dave Willis contacted me with a list obtained from the Maritime Commission
Order of ships - left merchant ship, to its right Waccamaw then Canisteo, Caloosahatchee, Mississinewa,Pawcatuck

Mr. Willis was a former crew member of USS Pawcatuck - he has identified the ship (raised letters can still be seen even tho painted over)
