"USS Chemung, Tug No. 18" ... March 12, 1918

Design plan for the tug Chemung (Tug No. 18) prepared by the Bureau of Construction and Repair's Preliminary Design staff on 12 March 1918, apparently for comparison with designs of new tugs then being developed for consideration for near-term construction. 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.

The original plan is in the 1911-1925 "Spring Styles Book" of the Bureau of Construction & Repair.
