USRC Manning, a 1150-ton cruising cutter, was built at East Boston, Massachusetts, and commissioned in January 1898. Her long career with the Revenue Cutter Service (the U.S. Coast Guard after 1915) was twice interrupted by wartime operations with the Navy. In 1898, during the Spanish-American War, she served off Cuba. She transferred to the Pacific after that, but returned to the Atlantic for World War I, during which she mainly operated in European waters. Manning was stationed at Norfolk, Virginia, during the 1920s. She was decommissioned and sold in 1930.
