USS Nausett, an 1175-ton Casco-class light draft monitor, was built at South Boston. Commissioned August 1865, she was decommissioned just two weeks later and laid up at the New York Navy Yard, where she remained for the next decade. During the widespread renaming of Navy ships that took place in June 1869, Nausett became Aetna, but got her original name back the following August. The ship was broken up in 1875.
