Ship name was possibly spelled "Elevada". Served in New Guinea prewar.
During late March 1942, this ship was expected at Buna.
During early May 1942, this ship was ordered to Buna to pick up the crew of B-26 Marauder 40-1418. But, it is unclear if this ship was dispatched there or not. Instead, The Olvira picked up this crew instead.
