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.
