The second Carrabasset (AT-35) was launched 12 June 1919 by Staten Island Shipbuilding Co., Port Richmond, N.Y.; commissioned 30 June 1920, Lieutenant (junior grade) G. O. Augustine in command; and reported to Train, Atlantic Fleet.

 

From 10 September to 21 November 1920, Carrabasset sailed between New York, Charleston, and Norfolk on towing duty. Early in 1921 she sailed to the Caribbean for that year's fleet concentration, and large scale maneuvers of ships from both Atlantic and Pacific. Returning to Norfolk 26 April, she alternated service with battleships off Hampton Roads, and with fleet units at New York. Service along the Atlantic coast and in the Caribbean, highlighted by her rescue of Arethusa (AO-7) on 26 January 1922, continued until she was decommissioned at Norfolk 27 March 1922. She was transferred to the Treasury Department for use by the Coast Guard 24 May 1924.
