|33k||USNS PVT. Leonard C. Brostrom (T-AK-255) at anchor, date and location unknown. PVT. Leonard C. Brostrom was converted to a heavy-lift cargo ship in 1954, and operated in that role into the 1970's. Distinguished by her heavy-lift booms on her midships kingpost, with a lift capacity of 150 tons, she was a near-sister to USNS Marine Fiddler (T-AK 267), but that ship had a single-level bridge superstructure and a single kingpost forward.
