On a fishing trip from Aberdeen in command of John Emmanuel Peck on 11/12 September 1907 she stranded on the Fless Rocks at the SE end of Fair Isle in thick fog and wine E-Force 1 and became a total loss. There are different accounts of what happened afterwards -
One account says that her crew (of nine) stood by the wreck in the lifeboat until they sighted some Fair Isle men in their boats who guided them ashore. Another account says that the islanders found her still afloat with no-one aboard - miles from Fair Isle - when the fog lifted.
