UNITED STATES: 1952 - Log set for record-breaking Voyage 327

Product Description

United States Lines – A set of UNITED STATES log abstracts for the record-breaking Voyage 327, east and west-bound. 

According to Frank Braynard in “The Big Ship”, the east-bound crossing was her second fastest, eclipsed only by the fabled 1952 record.  Here’s the story behind Voyage 327: 

The UNITED STATES was scheduled to depart New York at noon on Friday, August 26, 1966, but a union dispute flared up.  Passengers were already onboard and negotiations stretched on through the day into the night.  Finally, at 2 a.m., an agreement was reached and the Big U set sail.  She was fourteen hours behind schedule and Commodore Leroy Alexanderson was told not to spare the horses.  Speed he did, arriving at Le Havre four days and thirty-seven minutes later with an average speed of a swift 33.09 knots (or 38 mph for us landlubbers).  The UNITED STATES was only five hours behind her original schedule and was able to sail on time for the return leg. 

That trip – departing Le Havre on September 1 – was slower  at an average of 29.97 knots.  Seas were described as “very rough” throughout except for September 4th when they were “mountainous”.  Now that’s a voyage I wish I was on, provided I could keep my food down. 

Excellent condition.
