Coastal Transports (APc)

Most recent update: April 21, 2015.


In World War II, the Navy built 100 wooden-hulled fast coastal transports and four modified C1-M-AV1s, primarily to ferry troops around the Pacific Theater.  After the war, almost all were sold or otherwise disposed of but where they went is not clear at all.  If anyone can add to the "Disposition" column in the table below, please send your info to timcolton@aol.com.
