    looking for WWII Merchant Marine Vessel in 1943

    a eldredge Newbie

      My dad was on a vessel owned by States Marine Corp late Aug 1943 to Oct 1943 and the Captain was E Johnson.  I think vessel (name not yet found) left NY and entered Charleston, SC port.  From his merchant marine files, this is the only voyage not detailed.  Where are the merchant vessel logbooks for Charleston in 1943?  Or any other suggestion?

       

      His Army file (after he left the Merchant Marines in Oct 1943 and joined the Army in the Harbor Craft Co) states he was living on the Charleston Embarkation Base starting in Oct 1943.
