The boat was sold for scrapping, but by a key of fate this was never enforced. After a number of years spent in a cove in Arvesund, the boat was purchased by an association formed for the purpose,The
association Bevara Ångaren Östersund, after which renovations were carried out so that it could be put back into service in 1989.
