Cutter History:

Described as "flat-bottomed" and able to carry enough water for twenty-five days, Varina was transferred on 9 September 1861 from the Coast Survey for duty in New Bedford, MA. One year later she was re-assigned to Perth Amboy, NJ. She was sent to Philadelphia, PA in June 1863 and returned to the Coast Survey after the war. She was sunk 18 January 1870.
