Laird Clowes Naval Pocket Book lists only the following for Honduras:
Steel steam launch 22 OF FEBRUARY, launched 24.12.97,
13 tons, 22 HP.
That is in editions from 1904 to 1915.


"22 DE FEBRERO" was built by Howald, Kiel as #327
14grt 2nrt 12.19m x 3.00m x 1.65m h
Compound 2 Cyl 1 boiler 22ihp = 12kts
listed by shipyard as a tug

still extant 1910 (crew 4 men) together with another
vessel "EL VIGIA" - of which I have no data

A year after "22 DE FEBRERO" was built Revenue Cruiser
TATUMBLA Howald, Kiel as #345
108grt 20nrt 87.0ft x 17.7ft x 9.5ft
Triple Expansion 3Cyl 8“, 14“ & 22“-12“By builders= 12kts
2 small guns

That ship was sunk by smugglers in August 1909

Very probably the first Handurian naval steamer was WAIKNA
built 1885 by Robert Thompson odf Sunderland
156grt 95nrt 104.0ft x 23.0ft x 8.5 ft
Compound 2 cyl (9 & 18 x 14in) by Alexander Shanks & Son Ltd. 20nhp
Steel Auxiliary Screw Steamer Brigantine

She was purchased about 2 Feb 1886 by Hondruas government
and armed against fillbustering party.

Very probably she was identical with the yacht
GENERAL MORAZAN used in 1890 by President Borgan.
