The Coast Guard obtained six Chance-Vought O2U-2 Corsairs from the Navy Department's inventory; three in 1934 and three more in 1935. They were modified at Eastern Air Service, Miami. The overhaul included removal of til hooks, installation of dual controls for the aft cockpit, installation of Coast Guard radios, and engine overhauls.
