Manuwai (YTB-16), built by Supple & Martin, Portland, Oreg., was completed in November 1927; purchased by the Navy from Young Bros., Honolulu, and placed in service 9 July 1941.

Manuwai, operating primarily between Ford Island and the mainland of Oahu, served in Pearl Harbor throughout her naval career. On 28 February 1949, the wooden ferry was placed out of service, in reserve, at Pearl Harbor and put in dry storage on the deck of YCV-12. She was struck from the Naval Register 17 September 1954.
