C. F. Sargent (Id.No. 3027)


The Navy retained the name carried by this vessel at the time of her acquisition.

(Id.No. 3027: tonnage 1,689 (gross), 1,572 (net); length 220'3"; breadth 41'3"; draft 26'2" (mean), 27'0" (aft); depth of hold 17'11")

The wooden-hulled seagoing barge C. F. Sargent -- built in Yarmouth, Maine by C. Pendleton in 1874 -- was acquired by the Navy from the Luckenbach Steamship Co. for service as a coastwise collier.  Assigned to the Naval Overseas Transportation Service, the vessel was delivered to the Navy on 18 October 1917.

Given the identification number (Id.No.) 3027, C. F. Sargent ultimately foundered off Hen and Chicken Shoal on 31 July 1918 and was stricken from the Navy Register on 25 September 1918.
