Sale of Vessels Document Added

October 2008 Just posted is a complete document on the sale of U.S.N. vessels after the war. The 110' chasers were among a large number of small craft that were sold, since the U.S.N. didn't have any need for them. Some of the chasers were retained for training purposes or transferred to the Coast Guard or other armed services, but most were sold to private buyers for conversion to fishing or pleasure boats.
