It doesn't seem like this class was used very much as seaplane tenders, but seemed pretty useful as general-purpose ships.
That's why I just love this ship, silent hero of War.
Precisely! This class turned out to be quite versatile. That's the reason I'm really enjoying learning about it and drawing all the modifications.

Four ships of the class - Mobjack, Oyster Bay, Wachapreague, and Willoughby - were built as motor torpedo boat tenders. Here's USS Oyster Bay in 1944:

There's more to come.

After the war three ships of this class - USS Duxbury Bay (AVP-38), USS Greenwich Bay (AVP-41), and USS Valcour (AVP-55) - served as flagships in the Middle East.

In the 60's they received new masts, electronics and modified superstructures. In 1965 USS Valcour was reclassified as Miscellaneous Command Flagship (AGF-1).
