  • built by Henry Trevorrow in St. Ives, GBR in 1896 and registered as SS19.
  • installation of a 13hp engine in 1915.
  • probably works on the hull (lengthening by 10ft) in around 1927 by Peake's of Newlyn and probably exchange and installation of new engines (2x26hp).
  • fished under the ownership of the Barber family until 1933 when she had a serious engine fire below decks at Newlyn and then ceased fishing.
  • used as a house-boat on the Fal estuary for Arthur and Ralph Tomlin moored at Porth Navas on the River Helford for 50 years.
  • after three other owners she finally sank at her moorings in Penryn and was taken ashore.
  • 2003 bought by John Lambourn and transported by road from Penryn to a site next to Cosalt at Newlyn.
  • relaunched into the waters of Newlyn harbour in October 2007 after four years of restoration work.
