Inside The Ghost Ships Of The Mothball Fleet

Inside The Ghost Ships Of The Mothball Fleet
For decades, dozens of forgotten Navy and merchant ships have been corroding in Suisun Bay, 30 miles northeast of San Francisco. These historic vessels - the Mothball Fleet - served their country in four wars: WWII, the Korean War, the Vietnam War, and Desert Storm. After a decade of impasse, the ghost fleet is slowly dwindling as the ships are towed out one-by-one for scrapping.
Over a two-year period, Scott Haefner and some friends gained unprecedented access to the decaying ships, spending several days at a time photographing, documenting, and even sleeping aboard them - often in the luxury of the captain's quarters.
