    The wooden hull non self propelled open lighter YC-648 was completed in 1930 at Cavite, Philippine Islands, by the Cavite Navy Yard, for service in the Sixteenth Naval District. An annual report for 1941 indicates that YC-648 had been in use for 366 days (a leap year), and that it was considered serviceable, with its upkeep amounting to $1,760. Deemed required in the day-to-day operation of the Cavite Navy Yard, YC-648 was to have been replaced in 1950. The Japanese onslaught in 1941 somewhat altered that plan, however, and the fall of the Philippines in the spring of 1942 resulted in YC-648 being considered as lost due to the enemy occupation. Consequently, YC-648 was stricken from the Naval Register, 24 July 1942
