The SS UNITED STATES

The United States broke this record on July 3, 1952 on her Maiden Voyage of which my father (David Warren Zwicke) was a part of. The United States made the maiden voyage passing Ambrose Light at New York harbor to Bishop Rock off Cornwall, England in 3 Days 10 hours and 40 minutes at an average speed of 34.59 Knots or 40.96 Miles Per Hour.
