Nettie, a motorboat built in 1912, was acquired by the Navy from the Conservation Commission of Maryland 17 August 1917 and commissioned shortly thereafter, Chief Master at Arms Andrew Johnson in command.

Operating in the 5th Naval District, headquartered at Norfolk, during World War I, Nettie patrolled the Patuxent River and adjoining Bay area, basing operations at Solomon's Island, Md., where she became frozen in the ice for a time in the extreme cold of February 1918.

Nettie decommissioned and was returned to her owner 26 November 1918.
