Thursday, August 05, 1999
Donjon Marine and the Turkish Navy entered into an agreement to tow four ex-U.S. navy frigates from the East Coast of the U.S. to Golcuk, Turkey. The first, ex-USNS Miller measuring 414 x 44 x 24 ft. (126.1 x 13.4 x 7.3 m), began its voyage under tow by Donjon's 7,200-hp salvage tug Powhatan last July, for a scheduled arrival in Turkey this month. From there, Powhatan will return to the U.S. to retrieve the second frigate in Charleston, S.C., while the remaining two frigates are being held at the Philadelphia Naval Yard.
