"U. S. S. Chemung Tug # 18" ... March 12, 1918
Design plan for the tug Chemung (Tug # 18) prepared by the Bureau of Construction and Repairs Preliminary Design staff, apparently for comparison with designs of new tugs being developed for consideration for near-term construction (see for example Photo # S-584-128). Chemung was designed for the U.S. Navy and built of steel at Norfolk Navy Yard during 1914 to 1917. Originally named Pocahontas, the vessel was renamed on 1 September 1917. Chemung was decommissioned in 1926 and discarded in 1937.
This plan provides two 3-inch guns, reciprocating steam machinery, and a speed of 11 knots in a ship 115 feet long on the waterline, 25 feet in beam, and with a normal displacement of 555 tons.
Note: The original document was ink on linen (black on white).
The original plan is in the 1911-1925 "Spring Styles Book".
