Pasig (AO–89) was built in 1917 by Newport News SB & DD Co., Newport News, Va.; served the Atlantic Refining Co., Philadelphia, Pa. as SS J. C. Donnell; acquired by the Navy through the War Shipping Administration 22 January 1943, and commissioned the same day, as Pasig (AO–89).

 

Pasig was intended for use as a storage tank in the South Pacific near New Caledonia but was replaced by concrete barges. She decommissioned and was delivered to WSA 25 September 1943, and was struck from the Naval Vessel Register 11 October 1943.

 

Returned to her owner, Pasig reverted to her original name and served as SS J.C. Donnell until scrapped in 1947.
