Except for the unlicensed crew who were addicted to the berthing pay and various east coast shipyards, no one will miss these two ships. Arctic hasn't really done much in the last couple of years anyway.
Payment to the crew for substandard living conditions, not in accordance with normal merchant mariner practice. Basically, the AOEs were turned over for operations from the USN with typical for the USN berthing plans ( open bay berthing). It was decided to pay a penalty rate to the mariners vice doing the upgrade to staterooms. Some guys liked getting the extra pay instead of a room alone or with a room mate.
