(SP-933: 1. 60'0"; b. 12'0"; dr. 3' (aft.); s. 11.2 k.; cpl. B; a. 2 1-pdrs.)

 

The second Teaser—a wooden-hulled cabin launch built in 1916 at Norfolk, Va., by W. F. Dunn—was acquired by the Navy in November 1917 from George Roper & Brother and was commissioned on 29 November 1917. For the final year of World War I, she operated in the 5th Naval District on section patrol in the vicinity of Hampton Roads. On 27 December 1918, a month and one-half after the signing of the armistice agreement, Teaser caught fire and sank. Her name was struck from the Navy list on 15 February 1919.
