USS Hoga at the Shipyard for Repairs

USS Hoga (YT-146) was moved out of the National Defense Reserve Fleet anchorage in Suisan Bay, California and towed to the Allied Defense Recycling (ADR) shipyard in Vallejo, California.  ADR was opened at the site of the old Mare Island Naval Shipyard and specializes in environmentally sound ship repair, conversion and overhaul.

These two pictures were taken from across the channel.  Hoga can probably be seen from locations along Mare Island Way between the Vallejo Yacht Club and the ferry landing.

USS Hoga Has Been Moved to the Shipyard

The Vallejo Times-Herald newspaper has a good story with photographs.

We do not have a firm schedule for when she is likely to depart California, but we will post it as soon as we have it.
