JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- If you see a strange looking ship coming to our shores today, don't be alarmed.
The USNS Spearhead may look like an oversized recreational boat, but it's actually a high speed catamaran transport ship.
The ship is stopping in Mayport on its way to Norfolk, Va.
The ship is built to a modular design, allowing it to be loaded quickly with various equipment. It has a 20,000 square foot bay.
This class of ship is used for non-combat use, transporting troops and equipment.
