Thanks very very much for giving me lessons like that !! This is very interesting ! So all the ships went to Maersk or whereabouts did they go alltogether ? Alot of the older ships seem to go to Maersk and MSC (especially MSC). Not sure whether the book you mentioned is available in Europe though, I'm going to take a look ! :-D Here's the Sea-Land Performance

You're welcome. Referencing the Box Boats book again, the 12 were: Sea Land Atlantic (ex American Oklahoma; Sea Land Integrity (ex American Virginia); Sea Land Motivator* (ex American New Jersey); Sea Land Performance (ex American Washington); Sea Land Pride* (ex American Kentucky); Sea Land Quality (ex American Illinois); Sea Land Achiever (ex American Alabama); Sea Land Commitment (ex American California); Newark Bay (ex American Utah); Sea Land Value* (ex American Maine); Nedlloyd Holland (ex American New York); and Nedlloyd Hudson (ex American Nebraska). (*) These three were the ones modified by shortening. Oh, and finally they weren't called Econoliners the correct name was Econships.

There is a fine book titled "Box Boats, How Container Ships Changed the World" Author Brian J. Cudahy, which is really the history of Sea-Land Services. In this book you will find that Sea Land Atlantic (ex American Oklahoma) and Sea Land Commitment (ex American California)were two of 12 "Econoliners", (so-called Daewoo Dozen) built for United States Lines and later aquired by Sea-Land after the bankruptcy of US Lines. They were under-powered and rather slow (18 knots) but very large at the time. Sea-Land modified some of them, such as Sea Land Motivator (ex American New Jersey) which was shortened to 856 ft.
Regards, Chad

I donīt know.

That ship looks exactly as what I have seen "Sealand Atlantic" and "Sealand Performance", and I wonder, how many of that type got built ? If you know something, I'd be interested :-)
