Re: AEF cross Channel transport?
You should read about their trip around Cape Horn when they first went to the west coast. This was pre-Panama Canal. Heck of a trip for a pair of coastal steamers.
Silverstone (US Warships of WW1, page 254) lists her and the Charles as being used to ferry troops across the English Channel to France. Quite a journey to have got here in the first place!
