One of the early attempts at intermodal shipping. I still have my King's Point text book that states that LASH and Sea Bee ships were a novel and highly promising type of vessel. But it also stated that container ships rely too much on shoreside infrastructure and would "develop slowly, if at all". Oops, missed that one..:

One of the LASH ships of Prudential Lines, which went belly-up in 1985. LASH ships are probably the most under-appreciated ships ever built because few people have ever seen one and fewer still have ever sailed in one. Some transported cargo during the 1991 Gulf War, but the Military never understood how to use them properly either.

These ships were built like battleships. Everything on them was super-sized and super-strong. Each of the hatch covers weighed 90 tons, the crane could lift 450 tons, and the turn buckles used to secure the barges on deck were as big as a man. The main deck was solid steel two inches thick.

Her sistership, the LASH Pacifico, was later re-named the American Kestrel.
