Built by Hay for their own fleet. She was re-engined at Port Dundas by Hay with a two cylinder compound engine in 1914 and hulked in 1934.  There is a report that she was still in use as a coal hulk on the Clyde into the 1950s

The photograph below is undated but is clearly after her engine had been removed and she was being used as a coal hulk at Bowling sometime not long after the end of WW2.
