The first USCGC Chincoteague was a United States Coast Guard armed tug in service from 1919 to 1923.
Chincoteague was built at Annapolis, Maryland, as part of a class of United States Navy tugs intended for service in World War I. Completed after the end of hostilities, she was turned over to the Coast Guard on 14 November 1919.
