David,

You may wish to add these to the list. It's a list of Coast Guard vessels I've found so far that were at Oahu that morning.

The U.S. Coast Guard had ten vessels assigned to Oahu in December 1941. They were stationed in Honolulu Harbor, but operated under the 14th Naval District.  Many people know that the Taney is the last surviving Coast Guard vessel at or near Oahu during the 1941 attack, but how many people know the other vessels?

The Coast Guard historian's web site lists the following:

Taney (WPG-37)
Kukui (WAGL-225)
Reliance (WSC-150)
Tiger (WSC-152)

CG-400 (78-foot patrol boat)
CG-403 (78-foot patrol boat)
CG-27 (60-foot patrol boat)
CG-8 (former rum runner)
CG-4818
CG-517 (F B buoy boat)

The Pearl Harbor Attack Hearings also have a reference to CG-196, although that is the only reference I've found listing that vessel.

CG-400 went out to relieve Ward of her sampan at about the time the attack started. CG-400 is listed in the USS Antares deck log as coming out of the Pearl Harbor Main Channel at 7:50 that morning, and the Bishop's Point Radio Log recorded the CG Radio Station near Diamond Head talking to CG-400 about the Ward's sampan shortly before that.

We also know that a CG vessel went out to take a civilian off of the USS Helm in mid-morning.  The boy was the Commanding Officer's son, who had been onboard for the short trip from East Loch to the deperming bouys in West Loch.  The attack started as Helm was in the channel, so she left Pearl at high speed with the boy still onboard. Helm passed close enough to the CG-400 on the way out that one of the Helm crewmen later said they almost "ran them over."

Funny that Helm's action report makes no mention of the CO's son being aboard!    ;)

Actually, he could be an interesting guy to talk to...

Hi all,

I have a list of ships that also includes...

YW-10 (I have a photo of this water barge assisting VIREO with WEST VIRGINIA)

Notes on locations...

USCGC TANEY PG-37
USCGC RELIANCE PC-150
USS VEGA AK-17
CG-8
COCKENOE  YN-47
KUKUI WAGL-225
were all at Honolulu Harbor

USS ANTARES AKS-3
CG-400
COCKATOO AMc-8
KEOSANQUA AT-38
NAVAJO AT-64
USCGC TIGER PC-152
USS WARD DD-139
YT-153
were all working outside of Pearl Harbor


PT's 27, 29, 30, and 42
were aboard USS RAMAPO AO-12

PT's 26, and 28
were on the dock waiting to be loaded aboard RAMAPO

I have seen many other craft on lists...but have been unable to confirm location or participation.  I will list if anybody wants to know...or can confirm/deny.

I have yet to find out where REEDBIRD AMc-30 was located.
I have been lucky enough to find photos of most of the ships involved in the attack.

Hey guys!

USS Cockatoo was tied up at the Section Base Pier at the time of the attack, as were USS Condor, USS Crossbill, and USS Reedbird.  This is in the Main Channel near the nets.  

I've spoken with men on other ships who saw Reedbird there when the attack began, but she got underway almost immediately for minesweeping like the others.  

Mike Wenger also told me that he has seen sketches attached to action reports that showed Reedbird at the Section Base Pier on the morning of December 7.

YT-153 never made it past the nets that morning according to every story I have been able to find.  She was on her way out when the attack started, and turned around right away to go back in.  The time is not nailed down perfectly, since ADM Bloch said YT-153 sighted a submarine periscope in the channel at 0745 (before the actual attack) but others say it was really a bit later than that.

Your guess is as good as mine on the actual time, since everyone who was onboard YT-153 is now dead.

Hope this helps.

Hello David,
Checking out some of the previous posts as to ships in and around P.H. which I might add are very accurate. I would like to add a few that have been over-looked.
Nihoa YFB-17 West side of Ford Island
ex-Navajho (ex-AT-52) West Loch
US Army Transport Haleakala    Ft. Kam Pier
"    "    Tug Lt. Harry E. Crosby       "

Oops! Hit wrong key!

to continue:
YD-25  Navy Yard
YD-68  Supply Depot
YO-23 and YO-28 at Southeast Loch
YPK-2 and YPK-3 Tied up alongside the Ex-Baltimore
YPK's carried the submarine salvage pontoons and also note that when a USN ship is stricken from the Naval Register it uses the Ex- in front of its name until it is disposed of.
YSD-19  BB Row
YSD-27  Navy Yard
YAGT's 108 & 132 South of Coal Docks in Entrance Channel
YF-331 (ex-Intrepid) West Loch
YP-108 was NOT at Pearl Harbor
YS-88  Pearl City
YPD-16  Middle loch

also add civilian dredges working in Pearl Harbor:
Turbine  off BB Row
Marshall C. Harris  Middle loch
R.W. Atkinson  off Hospital Point
civilian tug Balboa  W/Turbine

From REEDBIRD's Log: Moored port side to Section Base Pier. 0745 General Quarters, Japanese planes bombing P.H. 0755 opened fire with .30 caliber M.G.'s. 0915 underway. 1000 Streamed magnetic sweep gear. 1020 commenced sweeping area outside P.H. Entrance. 1710 ceased sweeping.

Hope this helps for now.

Hey all,

According to Ken's post YP-108 was NOT at Pearl Harbor?
I have a listing that shows the Section Base having the following craft tied there....
USS CONDOR  AMc-14
USS CROSSBILL  AMc-9
USS CHENGHO  IX-52
USS ASH  YN-2
USS MARIN  YN-53
Motor Tug YMT-5
and Training Patrol Craft  YP-108, YP-109
Which is correct?

Also I show Repair Barge YR-22 outboard USS CACHALOT SS-170 at 1010 Dock, and YR-20 in Magazine Loch at Submarine Base.

Jon,

There were many vessels there that day.  My post was not intended to be complete, but rather only addressed the minesweepers, since they had been mentioned in a previous post.  I am quite sure that there were yard craft, barges, etc, all over the harbor that day that I have never bothered to study really.

Ken
