The USS Weehawken (YTB-776) was a United States Navy Natick class large district harbor tug named for Weehawken, New Jersey.

Construction and commissioning

The contract for Weehawken was awarded 31 January 1964. She was laid down on 13 August 1964 at Marinette, Wisconsin by Marinette Marine and launched 8 June 1965.

Operational history

Weehawken was delivered to the 9th Naval District in July 1965. In November 1965, she was placed in service in the 14th Naval District, which comprises the Hawaiian Islands and surrounding smaller islets. She also served at Guam. The tug conducted routine towing operations between those islands and rendered assistance to ships entering and clearing Pearl Harbor. As of December 1979, she was still active in the 14th Naval District.

Stricken from the Navy List 5 January 2001, Weehawken was disposed of during a fleet training exercise on 24 April 2003 after 37.5 years of commissioned service.[1]
