The American Flyer Boat
Also known as the USNS Flyer, was a US Navy C2-S-B1 type freighter. It was built for the Maritime Commission (MC). This boat was called Water Witch and was subsequently purchased in 1946 by United States Lines. They renamed it American Flyer. Under the orders of the Navy, the American Flyer carried out bathymetric missions in deep water for the installation of an acoustic monitoring system. The ship was completed in 1945 and commissioned under a Maritime Commission agreement with the McCormick Steamship Company. The vessel was acquired by the US Navy as part of a permanent transfer and commissioned in 1965. The Flyer was converted for naval service as a miscellaneous auxiliary vessel, bathymetric survey vessel, to conduct surveys in deep water for the Caesar project, the unclassified cover name for the installation of the acoustic monitoring system.
