The Other Boat

It might be worth noting, before I move on to something more topical, that the USS Neshanic (AO71) was not the first vessel to bear that moniker. There was a 271 ton steam ship by that name built at Cornwallis, Nova Scotia in 1870.

Sailing out of New York, the 134 ft. merchant freighter Neshanic, crew of six, was still plying the trade routes as late as the 1920s, and possibly longer.
