The SS Red Oak Victory; built by men and women of diverse backgrounds in the Kaiser Shipyards, Richmond, California. She is the only surviving ship built in these yards. Red Oak Victory served in the Pacific Theater in WWII with the US Navy and for twenty plus years thereafter as a merchant vessel including 19 trips carrying supplies to Vietnam. She is now an active museum in the Richmond shipyard and is run entirely by volunteers. We will be lighting off her engines for the first time in 50 years in the Summer of 2018 and then cruising the San Francisco Bay approximately a year after that.
We also run a very active social program including Pancake Breakfasts, Swing Dances, an Independence Day Celebration, and a Fleet Week event. See our website at www.redoakvictory.us for details.
