1/23 - Paul H. Townsend after conversion from a Navy C-1 to a cement carrier while waiting to depart Bethlehem Steel in Hoboken for the Great Lakes. You can see the original 380 foot hull form. The ship's superstructure has been modified, cut down, and secured to the forward main deck. I'm assuming they left it there for transit through low bridges and then must have been reassembled on top of the stern house once she got to the Great Lakes. Then, a few years later, the ship was lengthened and the pilothouse was moved up to the bow, as you see the ship today. I also noticed some unusual materials on deck, there seems to be either pipe assemblies or some sort of tanks sitting on the Starboard side, amidships. They might be some sort of deck cargo being shipped some where along the way to the Lakes. Brian Wroblewski
