Uncas IV

(YT-242: 1. 100'; b. 26'; dr. 10'; s. 12 k.)

The fourth Uncas (YT-242)—formerly Susan Moran and Southwind was built at Orange, Tex., by the Levingston Shipbuilding Co. and acquired by the Navy on 21 March 1942. She operated actively as part of the Service Force, Atlantic Fleet, for the duration of World War II. Her most memorable service came in early November 1942 when she helped to defend Convoy SC-107 as it steamed through the U-boat-infested North Atlantic from Halifax, Nova Scotia, to the United Kingdom. Uncas was placed in inactive status at Boston in March 1946. She was struck from the Navy list in January 1947 and sold to private ownership on 16 May 1947.

Uncas received one battle star for her World War II service.
