The second Scout (SP-114), built in 1900 by the Herreshoff Manufacturing Co., Bristol, R.I., was acquired by the Navy on 25 May 1917 on loan from her owner, Mr. August Belmont, New York; refitted for section patrol work, and placed in service on 25 June. For the next five months, she operated in the 3d Naval District. On 12 December 1917, she was returned to her owner.
