The second Scout (SP-114), built in 1900 by the Herreshoff Manufacturing Co., Bristol, R.I., was acquired by the Navy on 25 May 1917 on loan from her owner, Mr. August Belmont, New York; refitted for section patrol work; and placed in service on 25 June. For the next five months, she operated in the 3d Naval District. On 12 December 1917, she was returned to her owner.
