Menasha (YTB‑773) was launched by Jakobson Shipyard, Oyster Bay, Long Island, N.Y., 4 November 1964, sponsored by Mrs. E. J. Stock.

 

Placed in service in January 1965, she sailed to Norfolk for tug duty in the 5th Naval District, during which she was reclassified YTM‑761 in September 1965. Reassigned to the 4th Naval District in summer 1966, Menasha provides unglamorous but vital harbor services, primarily to the Philadelphia Naval Shipyard, into 1969.
