Chingachgook

Former name retained.

Chingachgook (No. 35), a motorboat, was purchased by the Navy, and placed in service on 6 June 1917, and assigned to the 3d Naval District for patrol duty. On 31 July 1917 her gasoline tank exploded, injuring members of the crew and igniting the ship. A survey of 13 October found her hull worthless and beyond repair, and she was subsequently disposed of by burning.
