|WikiProject Ships||(Rated List-class)|
Item for discussion: Should Coast Guard patrol ships and cutters, WPG, WPC, etc., be added to this list? Should a separate list be created for these? 220.127.116.11 20:00, 29 April 2006 (UTC)
The following uncited/OR content from the Section Patrol (SP) heading was relocated here:
- Add to SP list: USS See W. See SP-740 was built in 1915 at the yards of Willard F. Downs that was located in Bay Shore, NY. She was built as the See W. See (Official No. 213242) for Charles W. Cushman of New York. Measuring 65.5' in length, she was of a Bridge Deck cruiser design typical of the time. In 1917 like many other privately owned yachts, she became part of the US naval fleet. She served at the US Naval Reserve Force Section Base No. 5 located in West Sayville, NY (Today West Sayville Boat Basin). She was part of a three vessel fleet, the USS Sunbeam SP-251 and the USS Nemesis SP-343. They patrolled the waters in and off shore of Fire Island, NY. All took part in the search and rescue effort for the sunken USS San Diego ACR-6 off Fire Island in 1918. The See W. See was sold in what looks to be December 1918 to S. Kent Morris of Belvedere, NJ who took her to Ruddock Yacht Works in New York City for refurbishment back into a yacht. She has under gone many modifications since. She survives today as the Mar-Sue and is one of the few survivors (Only found one) from the many SP classified vessels of WWI.
