Zahma a wooden-hulled ketch with an auxiliary engine was designed by B. B. Crowninshield and completed in 1915 at Neponset, Mass., by George Lawley and Son, Corp., for John H. Cromwell of Cold Spring Harbor, Long Island, N.Y. Inspected by the Navy at the entry of the United States into World War I for possible service as a patrol craft, the vessel was rejected as 'unsuitable for naval use.' A quarter of a century later, the exigencies of war changed the Navy's evaluation of the graceful craft, and she was placed in military service on 26 February 1942. Classified as a miscellaneous auxiliary and designated IX-63, Zahma was based at San Diego as a local patrol craft in the spring of 1943. She was decommissioned and struck from the Navy roll on 18 July 1944. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/USS_Zahma_(IX-63))
