Sheffield YFB-45

(YFB-45: 1.145'0"; b. 44'0"; cpl. 4)

Shefield (YFB-45) was placed in service in 1944 at Pearl Harbor in the 14th Naval District. Manned by a civilian crew, she made daily runs between Halawa and Lord Island in Pearl Harbor for 16 years, from 1944 to 1960. In October 1960, her name was struck from the Navy list, and she was scheduled for an unspecified disposal.
