About the SS American Stout C2

The SS American Stout forms part of the American States Lines C2 type transport. The C2 serves as an all- purpose cargo ship and was one of the first standard prototypes designed by the U.S. Maritime Commission between 1937-1938. C2 type vessels were characterised by their size, stretching up to an average length of 459 feet. They had 5 cargo holds and were known to be larger than most cargo ships.

The SS American Stout was able to reach a much higher speed of up to 15.5 knots, while carrying 500,000 cubic feet of cargo. This represented a leap in technological advancement, which rendered the SS American Stout and all other C2 cargo ships superior in comparison to their preceding counterparts; the World War I- era vessels. She had the ability to maintain her speed, as steam turbine engines with finely-manufactured reduction gears powered her. Aside from her speed and capacity, the SS American Stout also had more space onboard, which meant improved crew accommodation All crew were housed amidships and had access to hot and cold water. Additionally, the SS American Stout was one of 10 ships built between 1945 and 1946, which had a higher, but thinner funnel. This extra space was used to install extra machinery that could provide refrigeration for cargo holds.

The SS American Stout served as a cargo ship during and after World War II, up until 1969 when she was abandoned after a loading incident.
