Pawtucket (YT-7) was authorized 3 March 1897; laid down 22 July 1898 at Mare Island Navy Yard, Calif.; and launched 17 November 1898.

Pawtucket's entire career was spent on the Pacific coast, the Puget Sound Navy Yard being her permanent base for more than thirty years. During World War II she served as a patrol craft and minesweeper in the Puget Sound area.

Harbor Tug No. 7 continued active in the 13th Naval District through World War II, when she was armed with a single 20mm. gun and her crew numbered sixteen. At the war's end Pawtucket, Reclassified as YTM-7, was declared surDlus, placed out of service, and transferred to the Maritime Commission 13 December 1946. She was then sold to the Northeast Merchandising Service, which operated her briefly in Puget Sound before scrapping her.
