Wannalancet (YTB-385)—originally projected as YT-385—was launched on 12 January 1944 at Brooklyn, N.Y., by Ira S. Bushey and Sons and was completed in May 1944. Assigned to Service Force, Pacific Fleet, soon thereafter, the ship operated, in service, until placed in reserve in March of 1946 at San Diego. Reclassified as YTM 385 in February 1962, Wannalancet was transferred, on loan, to the Venezuelan Government in January 1963. Renamed Fabrio Gallipoli (R-14), she served with the Venezuelan Navy into the late 1970's. As of November 1978, she was slated for sale.
