One for the carrier experts, and especially Ray Bean

Shangri La has long been a favorite of mine. According to some sources Shangri La recommissioned for about a year 1951-52 out of the Pacific Reserve Fleet, and operated out of Boston, Massachusetts. Late in 1952 she returned to Bremerton for her one stop 27C/125 conversion.
Haze Gray blurb disputes this.
Did she operate out of Boston for a year prior to conversion?
Assuming she did, are there any photos of her during this period.
Ray Beans photo of Phil Sea got me to thinking about this, so Ray it is all your fault.
Obviously my motivation is a model of her during this 51-52 period, using one of the Dragon long hull kits.
