Asher J. Hudson, later renamed Yuma—a tug built at Camden, N.J., by John H. Dialogue and Son and completed between 1888 and 1891—was inspected by the Navy at New Orleans, La., on 1 July 1918 and taken over from the Alabama Coal Transportation Co., of New Orleans, soon thereafter given the classification of SP-3104, Asher J. Hudson was commissioned at New Orleans on 1 August 1918. She operated locally out of New Orleans for the duration of the war. The tug was classified YT-37 on 17 July 1920 and subsequently renamed Yuma. She was eventually decommissioned and sold on 5 August 1921 to the Crown Towing Co., of New Orleans, LA.
