Former name retained.
Chingachgook (No. 35), a motorboat,
was purchased by the Navy, and placed in service on 6 June 1917, and
assigned to the 3d Naval District for patrol duty. On 31 July 1917
her gasoline tank exploded, injuring members of the crew and igniting
the ship. A survey of 13 October found her hull worthless and beyond
repair, and she was subsequently disposed of by burning.
