Default USS Narada (SP-161)

Just thought it would be fun to post this. The USS Narada was a steam powered yacht built in Leith, Scotland and launched in 1889 as a pleasure craft originally named, SS Semiramis. Later she was renamed SS Margarita, and then renamed SS Narada. In 1917, the USN purchaced the Narada for use as a patrol craft in the first world war. The Narada was later returned to her original owner in 1919.
