The owner took one third, £4 1s 2d, he had to pay for maintenance and insurance for the vessel.
This sloop was known to have travelled as far as London. On the 29th of April 1893 she sailed out of Hull with 70 tons of oil cake bound for Yarmouth. After discharging at Yarmouth she took on 63 tons of flour to take to London where she picked up 267 quarters of barley for Ipswich. She arrived back in Hull on the 27th of May, almost a month after leaving. The three cargoes brought £22 13s 3d, which was divided by thirds, two to the skipper and one to the owner.
By 1897 she belonged to Robert Seddon of Barton, who remained owner until 1901 when she sank in the Humber on the 21st of May at Trinity Sands, inside of Spurn Point. She was at the time carrying a cargo of gravel. The crew escaped in the sloops' cog boat. This Notice to Mariners was released shortly afterwards.
