(MB: dp. 200; 1. 84'9"; b. 18'6"; cpl. 8; a. 1 3-pdr.)

Richard Caswell, a motorboat built at Baltimore, Md., in 1900, was transferred from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to the U.S. Coast Guard as that service came under the operational control of the U.S. Navy on 6 April 1917. Manned by coastguardsmen, she patrolled the anchorages in the New York area and guarded ammunition ships loading cargo for overseas use until the end of World War I. On 31 January 1919, she was returned to the Corps of Engineers at Charleston, S.C.
