He served on the USS Kawishiwi in the 1970's. I called him today and told him about His ship and the plans for her. He thought she had been sold for scrap years ago. This is exciting! I hope she is reefed somewhere in Socal. She's BIG!
Kawishiwi was created to refuel a whole task force without other oiler support, all by herself.
She had a length of 655 feet and a beam of 86 feet. Maximum draft 35 feet. Her cargo capacity is 186,700 barrels diesel fuel. KAWISHIWI's full load displacement is 38,250 tons.
