A-half-ship

A ship without a rudder, as the old song goes, is in bad shape indeed. But what about a ship without a fore and aft? Looking a bit incomplete next to the lakers Sylvania and William A. McGonagle at Bay View Park is the old midsection of the USS Mispillion. The navy tanker came to Toledo in April. 1964 to have its midsction replaced at American Ship Building Co. The new section increases the length of the vessel from 522 to 643 feet. The Mispillion is gone and the amidships awate the fate of all foreless, aftless vessels, whatever it may be.
