It is believed that this is the ‘Saltash’ of 1864, ex cutter ‘Desmond’, ex ketch ‘Iron King’. She was altered from a sharp keeled yacht to an almost flat-bottom cargo vessel and used to take stone from the quarries and just travelled coastwise.
She ended her days as a houseboat for Boy Scouts in Tamerton. Her remains of her keel could be seen in Tamerton Lake, Plymouth.
