Mothball Fleet continues to dwindle as two more ships leave By Donna Beth Weilenman Martinez News-Gazette (CA) May 24, 2011Two more ships - the Clamp and the Bolster - were pulled free from the Suisun Bay Reserve Fleet on Monday, Cheron Victoria Wicker, director of the Office of Congressional and Public Affairs of the U.S. Department of Transportation Maritime Administration said.
The pair are Diver class auxiliary salvage and rescue ships built for the U.S. Navy toward the end of World War II, she said. They are the 22nd and 23rd ships to leave the bay since Department of Transportation officials announced Oct. 22, 2009, that the Obama administration wanted 57 obsolete ships removed from the site.
In the settlement of a three-year lawsuit filed by several environmental agencies, MARAD promised that 28 ships - those in the worst shape - would be gone by Sept. 30, 2012. The rest of the surplus vessels would leave by Sept. 30, 2017, according to the settlement.
