Smolt is another of the boats collected by Tough Brothers at Teddington and taken down to Ramsgate on her journey to Dunkirk. After the war she found her way to Brixham in Devon where Mr. and Mrs. J.E. Hambrook found her. She was their home and they lavished on her all the tender loving care she was in need of until she was sold and taken down through the French canals.

In 1988 she changed hands and over the last few years Smolt has undergone a substantial restoration at a boatyard on the North East coast of England. She changed hands early in 2002.
