World War I service
Margaret, a 273-gross-ton menhaden fishing trawler, was built in 1912. During World War I she was acquired by the Navy, being placed in commission as USS Margaret (SP-328) in May 1917. She was renamed SP-328 in 1918 to avoid confusion with another Navy ship named Margaret.
No longer required following the Armistice ending World War I, USS SP-328 was sold to her former owner in April 1919.
