Suisun Bay Mothball Fleet Photo Tour c. 2002

by Ben Dinsmore on April 23, 2011

The following photos of the Suisun Bay Naval and Merchant Marine Mothball Fleet (ghost fleet) were taken in early May of 2002 while I was stationed in San Francisco, CA for my annual Naval Reserve Duty.

Most of these ships are no longer in Suisun Bay and have been purposely sunk (artificial reef), scrapped, or sold off to foreign shipping companies. Every single one of these ships has a story to tell, but sadly, the majority of their stories will never be told.
