After repairs and renovations she was renamed Isle of Farquhar and began her new life taking workers and supplies to the outlying islands and returning laden with island produce such as maize, copra, livestock and salted fish. She was carried guano from St Pierre to Mauritius and in addition to Seychelles, served Agalega and the Chagos Archipelago. She later became a landmark at her final anchorage at Les Mamelles, Mahé.

I sailed as motor man with Capt Buick,Guy Adam Nan Officer,Harvy Brain,Radio Man,Nyene,Boswain,Concrella the Cook,and others on a few of her voyages,but all the waves seemed to be going up hill,on my final trip back from Mauricious I told The Port Capt that the ship was now only good as a Flower Pot as the sky could be seen from places that you should not be able to see the sky.That is all except I wish well and good health to All that sailed on her.Regards Marcus Savy.
