inbound Cuyahoga

“This “L6-S-A1” type (more commonly known as “Maritimer” class) steel bulk freighter was built in 1943 at an approximate cost of $1.97 million by the American Ship Building Co., Lorain, OH (hull # 828) as the Mesabi for the United States Maritime Commission. She was the 10th of 16 such vessels built in a 2-year period during World War II to carry much-needed iron ore to the steel mills who were mass producing tanks, artillery, aircraft, and other supplies for the war effort.” [source]
