NOTES

* A number of torpedo boats went in and out of commission during this time period, often seeing service with reserve units or State Militias. Most, however, came back into the Navy in 1917 and therefore remain on the list.

** These two categories merged together with the great wartime expansion of gunboat numbers in 1917.
