nemesis was deliverewd as merchatman ,
was a paddle sloop of the Bengal marine,
which only in 1850s should belonged to Indiabn Navy
so orignaly not built to Indian Navy but Bengal Marine
(note most of Laird built steamers were buitl for Bengal Marine), which was development form Bengal Pilot Service
her engines were used in the new NEMESIS built 1858 by Kidderpore.
