The second Ibis (AM-134), a converted steel-hulled trawler, was built as Tide in 1937 by the Bethlehem Shipbuilding Co., Quincy, Mass, acquired from her owner, General Sea Foods Corp., of Boston, 1 January 1942; and commissioned 23 May 1942, Lt. F. G. Crane in command.

Ibis was assigned to Woods Hole Section Base, Mass., as a training ship until spring 1943, when she took up minesweeping duties out of Newport, R.I. She decommissioned 1 May 1944. Her name was struck from the Navy List 16 September 1944 and she transferred to the Maritime Commission. She was subsequently sold to General Foods Corp., Boston, Mass.
