The second USS Mackinac (AVP-13) was a United States Navy Barnegat-class small seaplane tender in commission from 1942 to 1947 that saw service during World War II. After the war, she was in commission in the United States Coast Guard from 1949 to 1967 as the cutter USCGC Mackinac (WAVP-371), later WHEC-371, the second ship of the Coast Guard or its predecessor, the United States Revenue Cutter Service, to bear the name. The Mackinac was sunk during the summer of 1968 during target practice by four US Navy ships. She was the first ship to have a Terrier missile score a direct hit on her. The owner served on the same class cutter, the Unimak (WHEC-379) when she operated out of New Bedford, MA in the 70's and 80's.
