SS Enid Victory (MCV-712) Areas With Asbestos Exposure

The SS Enid Victory (MCV-712), a Victory ship built by the Permanente Metals Corporation was laid down on May 17, 1945, and christened on June 27, the same year. During its activity, the ship carried a complement of 62 Merchant Marine and 28 US Naval Armed Guards and had served during World War II, the Vietnam War, and the Korea War. Asbestos exposure was common in poorly-ventilated boiler rooms and engineering spaces of such ships. While on the way to Vietnam, an explosion took place in the engine room of the ship and was unable to return to port as a result of the damaged steering engine. The ship was sold for scrapping in August 1993.
