Carmita I (Schooner)

Former name retained. IX-152 was named for the first Carmita.


The first Carmita, a schooner, was captured by USS Magnolia on 27 December 1862. She was condemned by the Key West prize court and turned over to Admiral Bailey in command of the East Gulf Blockading Squadron. Carmita was placed in use as a lighter attached to the storeship in the harbor at Key West, remaining there until 1866 when she was declared unseaworthy and disposed of.
