The ocean that separates North and South America from Europe and Africa.
The first Atlantic (SP-1182)-a motorboat constructed in 1903 at Morehead City, N.C., by the John F. Bell Co.-was acquired the Navy on 20 August 1917 from the state of North Carolina. Though she apparently was placed in commission at some point in time, no actual date of this event has been found. After serving through World War I as a unit of the 5th Naval District section patrol, Atlantic was placed out of commission on 10 January 1919 and was returned to her owner on that same day.
