S.S. Robert Whitman Lesley
The S.S. Robert Whitman Lesley was built in November, 1944 by McCloskey and Company in Tampa Bay, Florida. She was used as an Army training ship in the South Pacific. In December 1948, she was partially sunk to form a breawater in Virginia.
The S.S. Robert Whitman Lesley lies with eight other concrete ships in a breakwater in Kiptopeke, Lower Chesapeake Bay, Virginia.
None available. However, since all the McCloskey ships are identical, you can see photos of the other ships to see what the S.S. Robert Whitman Lesley looked like.
There are also photos of the Kiptopeke Breakwater available, although I do not know which specific ships are pictured.
