From BP she was sold to a company in Plymouth where she was used to take waste oil off the ships being worked on in Plymouth. When she finished as a working vessel in Plymouth she was purchased by a Dartmouth shipwright who proceeded in removing the metal tank and converting her into a live aboard vessel.
