I 1 4 1 i Q A . I . 1 I , X UNITED T TES SHIP MOU T BAKER Fleet Ammunition Ship The USS MOUNT BAKER CAE-345 joined the fleet in July 1972. She is one of the four newest fleet ammunition ships in the Navy - the AE-32 class. This modern class of auxiliary support ship has brought an increased capability to the fleet for underway replenishment. With her advanced-design replenishment facilities, she can more effectively accomplish the rapid transfer of ammunition and other cargo to fleet units at sea. MOUNT BAKER is 564 feet in length and 81 feet in the beam. When fully loaded with 6,000 tons of ordnance cargo and 2,500 tons of fuel, MOUNT BAKER displaces 19,000 tons and has a minimum draft of 28 feet. The ship is armed with two Close In Weapon Systems mounts. MOUNT BAKER has berthing and messing accomodations for 31 officers and 399 enlisted personnel. When deployed, a Helicopter Support Detachment and Explosive Ordnance Disposal Team are embarked. This modern fleet ammunition ship is the second ship in the U.S. Navy to bear the name MOUNT BAKER. The first ship, also an ammunition ship CAE-45, took part with gallantry and honor in both the European and Pacific theaters of operation during World War II, as well as the Korean and Vietnam conflicts. She was stricken from the Naval Register in December 1969. Both the old and new MOUNT BAKER were narned for one of the more recently active volcanoes in the United States. Mount Baker, a peak 10,778 feet high, is located in the Cascade Mountain Range in the state of Washington. Having erupted as late as 1854, fumes and smoke can still be seen emanating from the peak today. On.30 April 1792, Lieutenant Joseph Baker III, Royal Navy, aboard HMS DISCOVERY, sighted the mountain which bears his name. Primarily, USS MOUNT BAKER replenishes other fleet units with bombs, bullets, missiles, mines, projectiles, powder, torpedoes, various other explosive devices and incendiaries as well as associated ordnance cargo. Secondarily, she maintains a replenishment at sea capability for limited quantities of fuel, water and combat stores. The ship also has facilities for limited ship repair and maintenance services, as well as special project services. COMMAN DI G OFFICER Commander Deborah A.

With the main engines rated at 22,000 shaft horsepower, the MOUNT BAKER can "steady steam" in excess of 20 knots. Like all snipes, this job is hot and dirty, but without them, the ship is D.l.W. The Boiler Technicians of B Division are responsible for the maintenance and upkeep of the ship's three 600 psi D-type boilers and their related equipment, that allows the ship to get underway. The steam that they provide not only moves the ship, but also powers the galley equipment and makes hot water for showers. And for anyone who ever had to get I2 o'clock reports together, the BTS provide the daily fuel and water reports from the Oil Lab. Without this division, the ship would never have made it home to Charleston.
