Stuff You Should Know

The USS Etamin (AK-93) was a Liberty ship built by Isaac Babbitt under a MARCOM contract in May 1943, to be used in World War II. The ship was named after the brightest star in the constellation Draco. Being a Crater-class cargo ship, it served the US Navy by carrying cargo and passengers in the Pacific Ocean until it was torpedoed in April 1944 and put out of service temporarily. Once it was repaired, it was repurposed and used as a non-self-propelled floating warehouse until the end of the war. The ship was sold for scrapping to Asia Development Corporation as part of a 15-ship set in January 1948.
