USS Taurus

USS Taurus (AF-25), formerly SS San Benito, was a refrigerated banana boat of the United Fruit Company that may have been the first merchant ship to be built with turbo-electric transmission. From October 1942 to December 1945 she was a United States Navy stores ship in the Pacific Ocean theatre of World War II.

Re: USS Taurus

I like the rigging and the way you show the weathering on these working girls, Jim.

Thank you Gray. I know from personal experience just how weathered and dirty ships can get. Wish I had a £ for every square meter of paintwork I’ve 'soogied' (washed) especially spent Jet exhaust from Carrier Islands and F/ads.
