Photographed by Edwin Levick, New York.
Privately built by Herreshoff at Bristol, Rhode Island, for possible Navy use as a patrol boat, she was commissioned as USS Snark (SP-1291) on 30 August 1917 and returned to her owner on 29 March 1919.
Note that she wears her wartime "SP" number, commemorating her Naval service, and has been refitted with an enlarged pilot house.
