SS Argonaut

The SS Argonaut was an Andromeda-class cargo ship in commission from 1944 to 1947.

Construction and commissioning

The Argonaut was laid down under a Maritime Commission contract as the Maritime Commission type C2-S-B1 hull MC 1182 by the Moore Dry Dock Company at Oakland, California, and was launched on 27 May 1944.[1] She was one of 81 C2-S-B1 type vessels (Breakbulk / Amphibious Attack Transport / Amphibious Attack Cargo / Navy Transport) built by Moore Drydock Company.[2][3]

U.S. Navy service

World War II

There is not much in the way of records for the Argonaut, but California Crew List records show it left San Francisco, California early in June 1944 on a round trip to Saipan via Pearl Harbor and return by the same route on 3 September 1944.[4]


The Argonaut was sold in 1947 and renamed the African Patriot then scrapped in 1973.[1]
