Construction and commissioningEdit
The contract for Wathena was awarded 9 August 1971. She was laid down down on 4 April 1973 at Marinette, Wisconsin, by Marinette Marine and launched 6 September 1973.
Placed in service soon thereafter at Norfolk, Virginia, in the 5th Naval District, Wathena provided assistance and towing services there until probably 1997.
Stricken from the Navy List 28 October 1997, Wathena was sold by the General Services Administration 17 May 2000. Renamed Patrick McAllister, ex-Wathena is in commercial service.
