This may be the one: The schooner Abeja berthed at the quay below Colleton Hill. The schooner Abeja was photographed circa 1900 at the Port Royal quay. With a gross tonnage of 191 tons, and 103 ft in length was a frequent visitor to Exeter. Capable of crossing the Atlantic, she was mostly used for coastal trade. She was built in 1881 by J & W B Harvey at Littlehampton, Sussex. Her master was A Rowe, and the owners W & C Phillips. http://www.exetermemories.co.uk/em/_...alshipping.php (Fifth picture from top, left column.)

From U-boat net: https://uboat.net/wwi/ships_hit/16.html

"Abeja" is spanish for "bee" btw. Wonder why they called her that?
