I went thru the Maritime Service Training School on Catalina Island.I signed on to the Cape Martin in San Francisco. We loaded up with Ammunition at Port Chicago, and took on a Deck Cargo in Point Richmond.Wee sailed all over the Pacific, and wer gone quite some time.
Is it possible to get a crew list, and or a Loig Copy ( Am willing to pay fo it). I reside here at THE VETERANS HOME IN YOUNTVILLE CALIFORNIA. There are many MERCHANT SEAMAN VETS HERE..
I have great memories of my Trip as a youth with the CAPE MARTIN..Can you help me out. My grandkids love to hear my stories, but have lost all my Pictures and Notes, as I came back and joined the Air Force ( Stayed in 8 Years) - but lost em in my many moves)..
Any body out there help me??

From Karsten Kunibert Krüger-Kopiske, who lets us use his drawings, the SS Cape Martin was a C-1-B brealbulk cargo ship, built by Consolidated Steel Corp., Wilmington, CA.
