USS Carolina was a 57 ft 6 in (17.53 m) wooden-hulled harbor launch built at Morehead City, North Carolina in 1906 for the United States Coast Guard, and stationed at Elizabeth City, North Carolina for her entire career.[1]

In accordance with Federal legislation of 28 January 1915, this ship was automatically transferred to the United States Navy upon the United States entry into World War I in April 1917. There is no record of her ever having performed active duty, and she was returned to the Coast Guard by an order of 28 August 1919.[2]

She was sold for $1,025 on 3 August 1922.[1]
