AGAWAM
3282 gross tons, length 324ft x beam 46.2ft, Official No.216996, speed 10.5
knots. Completed Oct.1918 by the Submarine Boat Corp., Newark, N.J for the
US Shipping Board, Newark, N.J.
Scrapped in the second quarter of 1926 for the Ford Motor Co.

She was one of many freighters built in WWI, but found to be redundant after
the war and was probably laid up. She was one of many ships sold to Ford and
scrapped, the steel used for car manufacture.

regards
Ted
