Navy Ships
Posted by: Nebuchadnezzar on October 20th, 2014 @ 5:19PM

We sunk this carrier off North Carolina

I sat here a long time reading about each ship that are in reserve or being scrapped/sold at:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/National_Defense_Reserve_Fleet

The National Defense Reserve Fleet (NDRF) consists of "mothballed" ships, mostly merchant vessels, that can be activated within 20 to 120 days to provide shipping for the United States of America during national emergencies, either military or non-military, such as commercial shipping crises.

At its peak in 1950, the NDRF had 2,277 ships in lay-up. In 2003, it had 274. In July 2007, it held 230 ships, primarily dry cargo ships with some tankers, military auxiliaries and other types.
