ss Louisianan & ss Napo

I was researching family over the last few weeks and found that my Great Grandmothers brother was a mariner. I found him on a number of crew lists but two of the ships are a mystery. The first one is the Louisianan which he signed on in 1901 and the other is the Napo which he signed on in 1900. I believe Napo was ex Harmony of T&J Harrison. Can anyone help out with a bit more info?
Also on signing on the Napo I note in the ‘previous vessel’ section he is down as what appears to be ‘deserted’ - there are one or two others on the manifest with that against their names as well. It appears they were quite lenient back then.
