Mist (SP‑567), a wooden motor launch, was built by Herreshoff Manufacturing Co., Bristol, R.I., in 1904; acquired by the Navy from her owner Mr. Edward Morrell, in the spring of 1917; and commissioned at Boston 28 April 1917, Boatswain J. H. Maxner, USNRF, in command.

 

Assigned to the 1st Naval District, Boston, Mist supported minesweeping training activities for the Mine Sweeping Division which operated along the Massachusetts coast out of Boston Harbor. She served as a dispatch and guard boat during the period of World War I. Following the Armistice, she was returned to her owner 3 February 1919.
