Anado

 

(MB: t. 33; 1. 70'; b. 13'; dr. 3' (aft); s. 20 mph.; cpl. 10)

 

Anado (SP-455)—a motorboat constructed in 1917 at Morris Heights, N.Y., by the Gas Engine & Power Co. & Charles L. Seabury Co.—was acquired by the Navy under free lease from Mr. J. A. Mollenhauser of Brooklyn, N.Y., on 8 July 1917; and commissioned on 17 August 1917. Assigned to the 3d Naval District section patrol, Anado patrolled the waters of New York and Long Island through the end of World War I. She was returned to her owner on 26 February 1919, and her name was stricken from the Navy list that same day.
