Built in 1943 by Puget Sound Bridge and Drydock of Seattle, Wahington as the YTL-361 for the United States Navy.

In 1960 she was sold to Foss Launch and Tug of Tacoma, Washington, where the tug was renamed Roland Foss.

In 1976 the tug was sold to an owner in Alaska, where she was renamed as Chippewa.

She was later acquired by Donald C Dana of Renton, Washington, where the tug was restored and renamed Donald Robert.

In 2014 the tug was acquired by Daniel King of Edmonds, Washington, who returned her name to Chippewa.
