- Notes: One of six vessels earmarked in 1941 for conversion to an auxiliary carrier was the diesel-powered Rio de la Plata, another C3 cargo ship from the Moore-McCormack Line and closely similar to the Mormacmail that became Long Island. Incomplete when acquired, the ship was renamed Charger and designated BAVG-4, slated for delivery to the Royal Navy. The conversioin gave her a longer hangar and flight deck than Long Island as well as a simple island. Originally armed with 3-4in guns as she was completed to British requirments in mid-1941. However, she was taken back into the US Navy as a school for Fleet Air Arm trainees. In Jan 1942 she was redesignated AVG-30, in Aug 1942 ACV-30, and in Jul 1943 CVE-30. Used primarily to train Royal Navy pilots in Chesapeake Bay, she was stricken and sold in 1946. Converted back to a merchant ship from 1947, she was renamed Fairsea in 1949. The four British near-sisters were Archer BAVG-1, Avenger BAVG-2, Biter BAVG-3, and Dasher BAVG-5.
