Woodbury, formerly Mahoning (her name was changed in 1873), was a 130-foot, 350-ton steamer rigged as a topsail schooner.  She was built by J. W. Lynn and Son of Philadelphia, PA, for $92,000.  She entered service in 1863 and served until 1915, a span of 52 years!  She underwent some modifications during her career, including having her hull lengthened and machinery replaced.  Here she is outfitted for naval service during the Spanish-American War.  She rendered assistance to the British schooner Effie May in 1905, for which she and her crew received the thanks of the Canadian Government, enforced neutrality laws in 1914, and sailed on winter cruises along the northeast coast. She was sold in 1915 to Thomas Butler and Company of Boston for $4,286. Members Participating in Auxiliary Boat Crew Training
