Default Re: US Navy Floating Dry Docks

Thanks for that Bill. I am now of the same opinion, and that where I have found records relating to ARD-4, that they are incorrect. I think the Navsource photograph I found, as mentioned in a previous post, is mis-captioned, and as John (Jayenn) says, is actually of ARD-1

Additional Info:

Just found some documentary evidence. In the book The Naval Institute Guide to the Ships and Aircraft of the U.S. Fleet, by Norman Pomar, it lists ARD-3 and ARD-4 as 'cancelled'.

Thats good enough for me ...!
