Passage On The POPE Begins…

USNS GENERAL JOHN POPE in World War Two service. Dan Cottle collection.

Peter Knego’s latest Sea Treks takes the reader with him into Suisuin Bay during the early morning hours last week to witness the removal of the sleek, twin funneled P2 transport, GENERAL JOHN POPE, from her moorings of over 40 years.  See other classic merchant ships in the US reserve fleet and join Peter on deck as the POPE prepares for her passage to San Francisco for a dry docking in preparation of her tow to Texas for scrapping. Click here for Passage On The POPE, Part One.
