EFC Design 1063: Illustrations


Scroll down for two photographs.



S.S. Ice King in commercial service at Goteborg Sweden, in September 1919. This requisitioned ship was built to the design that the EFC later designated Design 1063. The war-built ships of this type had kingpost pairs fore and aft in place of the usual masts, with a single topmast stepped on one of the kingposts near the stack. The later postwar ships reverted to the usual two-masted rig as shown in the drawing above. All ships of this type were built by the Standard S.B. Co., Shooters Island, N.Y. (Shipscribe)



S.S. Aledo, a requisitioned ship built to the design that the EFC later designated Design 1063, operating while owned by the Shipping Board between 1919 and 1929. The wartime kingpost pairs fore and aft were sometimes converted as shown here to goalpoast masts with topmasts, either after or near the end of construction. (Shipscribe)
