"All vessels are American unless otherwise stated; all are sailing vessels unless otherwise stated.... The date and place of building follow the name of the vessel. If the date and place are not available, then service, rig, or war, with date if possible, is given to distinguish craft of the same name built at the same time or place. If a vessel was renamed, that name is given wherever available. If a vessel was built under another name, the original name is listed." -Notes on the Indexes
