USS Georgiana III (SP-83), 1917-1918

USS Georgiana III, a 95-foot patrol vessel, was built in 1916 at Wilmington, Delaware, as the 82 ton motor pleasure boat of the same name. In early May 1917 the Navy acquired her from Edward T. Stotesbury of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Placed in commission later in that month and converted for Naval service, Georgiana III served for the rest of World War I in the Delaware Bay area, between New Jersey and Delaware. She was decommissioned at the end of November 1918 and returned to her owner.
