Allamakee (YTB-410) was laid down on 3 June 1944 at Brooklyn, N.Y., by Ira S. Bushey & Sons; launched on 23 August 1944; delivered to the Navy on 16 April 1945 and placed in service on the west coast with the 1st Fleet. The harbor tug was out of service, in reserve, at Hawaii by February 1947 and remained so until late in 1950. In October 1950, she was placed back in service in the 14th Naval District. After July 1954, her duty station was Midway Island at the extreme western end of the Hawaiian chain. Allamakee served the 14th Naval District, probably still at Midway, until sometime around mid-1959. The 1959 Naval Vessel Register Ship's Data Book lists her as struck from the Navy list in June 1959 and "Disposed of, by abandoning, burning, scuttling or sinking," but no records providing specific information concerning her ultimate fate have been found.
