Instructions for Searching
This database provides the original Army hull number, USAF and /or Navy hull number, name of the shipyard, location, , and much more. To view more detail on a given boat, click on the "eyeball".  To sort the spreadsheet based on a field, click on it's heading.  When sorting on Navy hull numbers  (and the arrow pointing up) the field  will sort the field from left to right so that C1000 will come before C20. Listings for Navy boats will start on page 17. I am particularly interested in completing the missing data. Please contact the website owner via the CONTACT page with additional data you may have.
 
A "P" boat under the U.S.. Army designation system was a Patrol or rescue vessel. Other prefixes you will see in this database include "Q" for personnel vessels of roughly cabin cruiser size and "QS" for fast supply boats. The final prefix found here is "J", used to designate launches of many types and sizes.
 
Much of the data comes from "Report of Army Small Boat Construction, 1 July 1940 to 31 May 1945" and " U.S.. Army Ships and Watercraft of World War II". The table below does not show most of the boats produced by Miami Shipbuilding Company, who built for the Navy and whose records are in disarray. Two 94 ft prototype boats were built in 1955 or 56, but the program was dropped. The 83-foot boats were Design 203, built at the beginning of the program. 
 
* 72' boats pre-WWI boats, one each were Located at MacDill (FL), Bolling Field (DC), and Bermuda.
** 83' boats are probably a USCG design. Some USCG #s overlap rescue boat numbers. Some sources show them as 84' Boats.
