The Steamer ALIQUIPPA is mentioned by JW on December 2, 1917.  He writes that she had been sunk and at the Elizabeth Marine Ways for some time and that this was a "big job."   In the S&D Reflector December 1974 Page 35 it is written that the repairs to the ALIQUIPPA after this sinking were performed at the Floreffe Marine Ways. The Floreffe Marine Ways and the Elizabeth Marine Ways were in close proximity and it is possible that some repairs were performed in each location and if so it is not known what repairs were performed at the Elizabeth Marine Ways or at Floreffe.  Another possibility is that one of the publications is in error being either the journal entry written in real time during December 1917 opposed by the S&D article written in 1974.  You decide.
