S.S. Hawaiian Shipper

This view of Euryale's sister, photographed by the U.S. Army Signal Corps on 31 December 1943, shows the original appearance of these two ships.
They were equivalents of the Maritime Commission's C3 type freighter privately built by the Matson Line with custom features including a rig consisting of seven kingpost pairs. Hawaiian Shipper was scrapped in 1973.
