USS Maysie (SP-930) was a United States Navy patrol vessel in commission from February to December 1918.

Maysie was built in 1899 as the private motor yacht Verano by the Daimler Manufacturing Company at Astoria on Long Island, New York. She soon was renamed Laurena. In 1901, James Harkness sold her to Oscar Lipton of New York City, and she later operated under the name Maysie. By 1917, Maysie was the property of M. C. Schweinert.

In 1917, the U.S. Navy acquired Maysie from Schweinert for use as a section patrol boat during World War I. She was commissioned as USS Maysie (SP-930) on 19 February 1918.

Assigned to the 3rd Naval District and based at New York City, Maysie operated on patrol duties for the rest of World War I.

Maysie was decommissioned on 8 December 1918 and was returned to Schweinert the same day.

Notes

  1. ^ The Dictionary of American Naval Fighting Ships at http://www.history.navy.mil/danfs/m7/maysie.htm claims that Maysie had a complement of only two men and NavSource Online: Section Patrol Craft Photo Archive Maysie (SP 930) repeats this number, but such a small crew could not have manned a vessel of Maysie's size and the number "2" probably is a typographical error in the Dictionary of American Naval Fighting Ships.
  2. ^ The Dictionary of American Naval Fighting Ships at http://www.history.navy.mil/danfs/m7/maysie.htm claims that Maysie had no armament and NavSource Online: Section Patrol Craft Photo Archive Maysie (SP 930) repeats this, but a vessel of Maysie's size almost certainly was armed for patrol duty.
