I believe that question is best answered by Commodore Johnson. But I'll
wing it. We number ships as well as name them, because it is easier to
keep track of the unit, on paper. For example, Would you rather write
Ship #228 or S.E.S Sea Dart II Elizabeth, NJ.
Personally I'd prefer the number. quicker, easier, more efficient.
