Looks like the ship was renamed, it was an oil tanker:
"SS The Cabins renamed William T. Steele"

History of the ship:

Picture of a same type tanker:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/T2_tanker also click on link at bottom of List of names and The Cabins is in the T section.

You might try the SIU-Seafarers International Union to see if they have an archive and any old records of members. They had the strike in 1947.
