The Navy has a floating barracks that is somehow worse than living on an actual ship | Task & Purpose

Must Read

The Auxiliary Personnel Lighter (APL), also referred to as a Berthing and Messing Barge, is an 82-meter long gray-white structure that the Navy may lay on the sea with no means of transport weaponry or spirit. APL is the Navy’s answer for momentarily sheltering soldiers when their battleships are unusable due to maintenance, massive fires, or anything else that might need them to stay offshore for longer than expected. This week, the Navy’s newest berthing barge, APL-67, sailed from VT Halter Marine’s Mississippi shipyard on its way to Naval Base San Diego for delivery to Yokosuka, Japan. Up to 611 sailors can be accommodated on these barracks barges.
