She changed owners a couple of times, before she ended up sailing for the company Falkland Islands Company in London. Under a journey from Vancouver to Mozambique loaded with wood she hit ground outside Port Stanley 17. February 1936. The ship was firmly stuck and was soon stricken from the ship lists.
