From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Dispatch boat is a U.S. Navy vessel used to deliver messages (dispatches) between ship and shore or ship to ship. Dispatch boats -- small and swift moving ships -- were in use until their need was replaced by the use of radio, which was introduced on ships during World War I.
