Effective 13 November, 2004 the Family Clan Short Atlantic Fleet is commissioned and consists of the following units. Ensure all persons who might require interaction with the Fleet are updated with the new capabilities and designations. Note that the pre-commissioning CSSF designation is retired upon entering active service as a commissioned vessel in the Family Clan Short Fleet. 

The following are the hull designations as determined by Patriarch Cory Short: (Note that classification is determined by capabilities, not hull design. This is different than other naval vessels, but is a logical change due to the Fleet being based initially on converted ships and boats)
