Thank you for the additional info, Marc. The classic freighter lines lines were unmistakable, but I wasn't sure whether she was formerly in commercial service or had been purpose-built for the Navy.

Nice to see a shot of the former States Line classic freighter CALIFORNIA under way as CAPE JACOB.
Thanks for posting this one, Phil. Most of the time, these vintage ships are at rest in the Reserve Fleet.
