Her first MNL entry which I can find (for 1900) lists her as "Rebuilt 1894"  and in the ownership of John Burrows of North Pier, Oban. The entry bears a notation which indicates that no information on the rebuild was received by the Registrar.

By 1920 re is owned by George T Hume of Lowestoft in Suffolk but managed by Harry Morgan of the Isle of Kerrera. I have no information to confirm or deny it, but perhaps despite her ownership going south and to the opposite coast she remained plying the waters of the West Coast?
