|History||Vessel not listed in Lloyd’s Register, so likely sunk on first voyage after renaming and/or return to service.|
One possibly is an iron-hulled bark of originally 1050 tons named Oriana built in 1864 by Scott & Co, Greenock. This vessel came under Italian ownership before 1900. On September 14, 1908, she put into Montevideo in distress. Listed in LR as sold for breaking in February 1909. If not broken up, but instead used as (say) a hulk, then could have been available for repair and return to service.
