Two RO-RO units are based at New Orleans

MV CAPE KENNEDY (T-AKR-5083) and MV CAPE KNOX (T-AKR-5082) are based at New Orleans. It doesn't make much sense to load them or any other units for a trip to Houston when land routes are or will be available. Sending a Hospital Ship could be a possibility.
A photo of the pair tied up in New Orleans I took on 4 July 2017.
