Final voyage of the SS American Racer

Thanks to The Maritime twitter stream for posting this gem.  This is the SS American Racer on her voyage to be scrapped.  Why is the American Racer important to maritime history?  It was the first ship to carry containers across the Atlantic.  What does it have to do with Amver?  Not much really, but we thought it was an interesting story and photo worth sharing.
