SEEN OFF WEST SEATTLE: USNS Carl Brashear

Just after someone else texted about seeing that ship off south Bainbridge, Jim Borrow sent the photo. It’s a Military Sealift Command dry cargo/ammunition ship, USNS Carl Brashear (T-AKE 7). Looks like some work is ahead for the nine-year-old vessel, named for Master Chief Boatswain’s Mate Carl Brashear (1931–2006), the first African-American to become a US Navy Master Diver.

    I saw this vessel parked at Indian Island over the weekend.

    A lot of the Sealift Command vessels are, shall we say, well worn in. These vessels are crucial for transporting materiel, I’m glad that at least one is getting some work done on it.

    We may not be the prettiest girl at the dance, but we’re magic when the music starts.

      Waving from across the water – I think that’s you we can see anchored at Manchester through the trees across the street.

Sorry, comment time is over.
