Built in 1945 as the cargo ship Tuskegee Victory, this ship was converted into a hydrographic survey ship in 1958. USNS Dutton was operated by the Military Sealift Command for the Naval Oceanographic Office. She was laid up in 1989 and finally scrapped in 2008. Originally built in only 6 weeks, one might say that the taxpayers got their money's worth out of this ship!

many thanks Robert. I think Bob's photo was taken as she passed Rozenburg a few minutes after mine, passing Maassluis.
