Sabine Sun (No. 2747), a tanker, was built in 1918 by the Sun Shipbuilding and Dry Dock Co., Chester Pa., for the U. S. Shipping Board. She was to be taken over for the Naval Overseas Transportation Service; furnished with an armed guard of Naval personnel by the United States Shipping Board, and used as a service oiler. However, her acquisition was canceled at the close of World War I.
