USS Cuttyhunk Island (AG-75) Areas With Asbestos Exposure

The USS Cuttyhunk Island was a miscellaneous auxiliary ship belonging to the Belleisle-class that was built by the New England Shipbuilding Co. in late November 1944 and later acquired by the US Navy to be used as a transport ship, carrying troops from Bermuda to Boston, Massachusetts after the war ended. The ship was sponsored by Mrs. M.M. Dayo. After finishing its duties in the North Atlantic, the ship steamed for Orange, Texas to be decommissioned and placed in the reserve fleet. It was reclassified as a stores ship in August 1951 and scrapped in 1960.
