This stern trawler has been working out of Hobart for a number of year until 2002. When she had a major mechanical failure. Work was started on striping her for repair and the damage caused by the failure was so extrime the more they striped the bigger the repair bill become, it was decided that it was uneconomicle to repair. Striping work has been patily completed in preparation to using it as storage unit or scarp her. 12/10/06 the latest is that a proposal has been put in for her be anchored permanatley off on of the Aquacultre farms as a shelter/workplatform..
