Hello Red Tom,

The Liverpool Mercury dated 7 November 1881 reported that the ship Manna Loa sailed from Liverpool on the 5 November 1881 for Valparaiso.

There were a number of ships called the Mauna Loa, perhaps this was the name of your ship.

I think Leightons suggestion of MAUNA LOA official number 72640 often misspelled MANNA LOA is a good a place to start as any.
She was a barque built and registered in Maitland Nova Scotia in 1881 built and owned by C Putnam 1086 grt. She left the British Register in 1898, sold foreign and after several name changes and owners she was lost in 1924 off Kefken Turkey.
You need to look at her 1881 and more likely her 1882 crew agreements to see weather your man was on board.
This can be obtained from here.
