Greg,

Interesting poster, thanks for posting it.

Have the ex Sea-Land SL-7s (Algol Class) been removed to the Reserve Fleet, or have they been scrapped?

All eight ships took part in Operations Desert Shield and Desert Storm, delivering thirteen percent of all the cargo transported between the United States and Saudi Arabia during and after the Persian Gulf War. Fast sealift ships have taken part in Operations Restore Hope, Joint Guardian, Enduring Freedom and Iraqi Freedom in addition to humanitarian relief efforts across the globe.

On October 1, 2007, the United States Maritime Administration began operating all eight FSS. All eight were transferred to the Ready Reserve on Oct. 1, 2008. At this time their USNS designations were replaced with SS designations as they were no longer US Navy Ships.

Looks like Cape Henry (ex-Barber Priam) is not on the active list?

The Cape Henry was still listed at Alameda, CA in the June 30, 2012 Ready Reserve Fleet inventory.
