Wrecked on the Isle of Tudy on passage from Cardiff to Quimper, Brittany.

The original dimensions are taken from "Clyde and Other Coastal Steamers" by Duckworth & Langmuir, who quote the construction year in the fleet list as 1853 although correctly in the text as 1863. The builders are also incorrectly given as Tod & McGregor.
Further data from Ian Buxton.
