Article name[edit]

This article is improperly named. It should be named either SS Red Oak Victory (its civilian name) or USS Red Oak Victory (AK-235) (its official US Navy name & designation)—not a conglomeration of the two. Maralia 02:34, 11 October 2007 (UTC)

I would go with the civilian name, because that's how it's represented as part of the national park. howcheng {chat} 02:02, 15 October 2007 (UTC)

I too believe "SS Red Oak Victory" is the most appropriate. Technically, I believe "ex USS Red Oak Victory (AK-235)" would be the correct designation, since her name was stricken from the naval register long ago.Martinihenry (talk) 02:00, 21 December 2007 (UTC)

Moved to SS Red Oak Victory. howcheng {chat} 18:11, 15 January 2008 (UTC)
Thanks, this had fallen off my radar. I've tweaked the article text a bit to clarify the Navy connection. Maralia (talk) 20:32, 15 January 2008 (UTC)
