One more obsolete ship from the James River Ghost Fleet has left for scrapping in Texas.
The Santa Cruz was towed from the James River Reserve Fleet at 10:10 this morning, according to the U.S. Maritime Administration. As of noon, it had not reached the James River Bridge.
The Santa Cruz, a cargo ship built in the 1960s, is one of three ships heading to Brownsville, Texas, this year for scrapping.
Since 2001, 23 ships have been removed; 56 remain.
The Maritime Administration is scrambling to meet a congressional mandate to dispose of all environmentally hazardous ships in the James by 2006.
