USS Winfield S. Cahill (SP-493)
At the Norfolk Navy Yard, Virginia on 18 August 1917.
Her camouflage appears to be a form of the Mackay Low Visibility type. A similar ship is immediately behind her, also painted in this camouflage scheme.
By a July 1917 Navy General Order, this former civilian fishing vessel's name was ordered shortened to Cahill. However, her longer name often continued in use.
