A well preserved 1945 cargo vessel . I had a great guide in Dave who showed round the bridge and engine room and explained everything about the ships history , especially the moving story of the rescue of the Koran refugees in 1950 .

It's easy to overlook this well-preserved World War II cargo ship near the USS Iowa. In fact, I understand it used to be parked where the Iowa is. Many interesting exhibits and you can wander around almost the whole ship. The exhibits are roomy, well...More

A piece of history. Really nice preserved for an over 70 year old cargo ship. Almost like a liberty ship just with a stem turbine instead of a steam engine. Loved it. If you like history or old engineering milestones, it is a must visit!

World War II could not have been won if supplies could not have provisioned the armies and navies. Merchant mariners and ships accomplished this mission. The Lane is the last survivor of over 60 AP2 7600grt freighters built in 1944-45 for the war effort. It...More
