Elliott (ID 2898)


Tug: Built at Newburg, New York, in 1875 and rebuilt in 1899. She was previously, and perhaps originally, named Wauwatosa. At the end of May 1918, when inspected by the Third Naval District (New York City area) for possible U.S. Navy service, she was owned by the Pareis Towing Line of New York City. Reportedly delivered to the Navy at Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, 25 January 1919 and placed in commission at that time as USS Elliott (ID 2898), she was presumably returned to her owner, or otherwise disposed of, later in that year. Fate unknown.

Specifications: Displacement 45 t.; Length unknown; Beam unknown; Draft unknown; Speed unknown; Complement unknown; Armament none.
