Shubrick I

(Str.)

The first Shubrick was a lighthouse steamer transferred from the Lighthouse Board to the Revenue Center Service at San Francisco, Calif., on 23 August 1861. She operated as a revenue cutter primarily in the Puget Sound area.

On 15 February 1865, Shubrick was transferred to the Navy Department for 90 days for special service in the Bering Strait supporting survey operations conducted by a Col. Charles S. Buckley, the agent of the Russian Telegraph Co. No records of Shubrick's naval service have survived, but she was returned by the Revenue Cutter Service to the Lighthouse Board on 24 December 1866.
