Toxaway—a wooden-hull motorboat built in 1917 at Morris Heights, N.Y., by the Gas Engine and Power Co. and the Charles L. Seabury Co.—was acquiredTed by the Navy on 9 June 1917 from J. H. Nunnally. Designated SP-743, the boat was commissioned on 12 June 1917, attached to the 2d Naval District, and operated out of Newport, R.I., on section patrol through the Armistice. On 2 December 1918, Toxaway was returned to her owner.
