USS Helm DD-388 - Action Report, out at  0813
USS Aylwin DD-355 - Action Report,  out at 0858 with 50% crew and no senior officers.
USS Patterson DD-392 - Action Report, Out around 0900.
USS Dale DD-353 - Action Report, out at 0907.
Monaghan DD-354 - Action Report Out at 0908 trailing Dale.
USS Blue DD-387 - Action Report, out at 0910.
USS Farragut DD-348 - Action Report, out at 0927.
USS Ralph Talbot DD-390 - Action Report, out at 0934.
USS Henley DD-391 - Action Report Reports being underway at 0830 but does not list the specific time she cleared the channel. Also, she reports following USS MacDonough out, which is incorrect and was probably USS Monaghan as her report talks about the MacDonough making a depth charge attack in the harbor.

These ships were from DesDiv2 moored at Buoy X-18 and DesDiv 8 at Buoy X-11.

USS Nevada - made a run for it but was beached around 0910.

USS St.  Louis was underway before the attack ended but did not clear the channel before the end of the aerial assault. She was fired upon by two torpedos from Midget Sub E however, which did not hit her and impacted a coral reef between the two vessels.

Some of the times may be off slightly, some ships reporting clearing the channel others clearing the buoys and I'm not sure how much of a difference there is.

My memory tickles me that there may have been an Auxiliary ship that also cleared the harbor during the attack but I can't remember it right now... if I find more I'll post them.

Edited because I forgot an obvious ship - The Monaghan.

While talking to a Veteran of Ward's later actions, an interesting coincidence was brought up. Of these nine destroyers, only three of them actually sortied with their captains and Executive Officers present! Helm had actually started moving for the West Lock about 20 minutes before the attack started, and Monaghan of course had  her captain on board as the ready-duty destroyer. Other than that only Ralph Talbot's Captain was aboard when the attack started. All the other ships had to pick up their captains later!
