Hi all..

I just learned yesterday that the link I posted to my Drop Box of plans ws dropped off the main forum page and that the site does this from time to time...

So I'm posting it here for those that want to access them....

https://www.dropbox.com/sh/4cn7x3t0pgpm ... sdBMa?dl=0

There are well over 200 sets of plans in various completeness, most of them USN Booklets of General Plans acquired from the national archive...

Enjoy.....

EG

Thank you very much for your work!

Do you have seen plans of the Robert D. Conrad class AGOR (AGOR-3, 1962)?

It's my pleasure...

On the Robert Conrad class there is nothing in the public archives.... but that being said I've came across this....

https://onepetro.org/MTSN/article-abstr ... edFrom=PDF

They did a report on the ship design process from concept to builders plan and they used the Robert Conrad as the subject... It's supposed to contain sketches and some plans....

It would be a good place to start, but you need an account and the download has a price.... 35.00 for member access.....

Hope that helps....

Thank you for the link!

Do you have seen plans of the survey ships of the Kellar class (AGS)? T-AGS-25 Kellar and T-AGS-31 S. P. Lee?

No, the USNS Kellar T-AGS-25 was a one off, a single ship class... (and a kind of pariah ship, according to report always had issues and accidents so it was eventually canceled, and then eventually completed)

What I do have is the USNS Silas Bent T-AGS-26 the follow on class to the Kellar..... And from what I can gather is fairly close to what they wanted in the Kellar.....

The USNS Samuel P. Lee T-AGS-31 was the follow on class of AGS after the four Bent class ships.... (they are close to the Bent class as well).....

BoGP is in the Drop Box....

Thank you, I found the plans of the AGS of the Silas Bent class.

According to Navsource, USNS Kellar (T-AGS-25) and USNS S.P. Lee (T-AGS-31) were sisterships.

Their dimensions are very similar, they look very similar - and they also look very similar to Robert D. Conrad class. I have the impression that the two class are based on the same design - but I am not sure, I have only very limited information on their design history.

USNS Kellar (T-AGS-25)
Displacement 1,320
Length 209'
Beam 39'

Length 208' 10"
Beam 39'

Length 209'
Beam 40'
