The second Pequot (ID-2998), built in 1910 by J.C. Tecklenborg A.G., Geestemunde, Germany, was operated as Ockenfel~ by the Deutsche Dampfschifffahrt Ges., Hansa, until interned at New York at the outbreak of World War I. Seized when the United States entered the war, she was repaired and taken over by the Navy, on bare boat basis, from the Shipping Board, 28 October 1918. Commissioned as Pequot the same day. Lt Comdr. John Deery, USNRF, in command, she served in NOTS as a general cargo carrier on both the Army and Shipping Board accounts. She was struck from the Navy List and returned to the Shipping Board 11 July 1919.
