TOM M. GIRDLER
TROY H. BROWNING/ THOMAS F. PATTON
CHARLES M. WHITE

Known as the “Girdler Class”, these ships were converted for lakes use in 1951 from three 1946 built C4-S-A4 ocean cargo ships. These ships were known for their unprecedented speed but were ultimately doomed due to their small cargo capacity and high fuel consumption. The detailed drawings are printed on archival 100# Silk Stock. All prints are 20” x 10”, custom sizes available upon request. See the C-4 Order Form for pricing and shipping information
