"Jane Banks" last voyage was a government contract with coal for Bermuda and Jamaica and home with wrecked stores.
Although newly copper bottomed for this she was lucky to get home starting to leak dangerously in the Bay of Biscay and completed the last 90 miles rudderless. "Jane Banks" last British master was Captain G. Rundle.
In 1936 with the death of Edward Stephens, she was laid up at Par harbour and later on Par beach. Many thought that would be the end of her.
