Wendy (SP-448)—a motorboat built in 1913 by the Jahncke Navigation Co.—was acquired by the Navy from Mr. C. A. Sporl in July 1917 for duty with the section patrol. Commissioned at New Orleans, La., on 3 August 1917, Wendy patrolled the waters around New Orleans during World War I. She was placed out of commission on 9 December 1918 and was returned to her owner that same day.
