(Tug: dp. 66; ]. 96'; b. 16'4"; dr. 7'6"; s. 10 k.)

Rapido, a wooden harbor tug built in 1891 at Carraea, Spain, for the Spanish Navy, was captured in the Philippine Islands in 1898 and subsequently taken into the U.S. Navy.

Rapido served at the Cavite Navy Yard throughout her career. Removed from service in 1918, Rapido was probably sold locally in the same year.
