Na daar lang te hebben gelegen, werd zij door de Zuid-Afrikaanse Havenautoriteiten op 30 september 1969 publiek verkocht aan S.A. Marcis te Durban. Deze verkocht haar in de zomer van 1970 aan Cephalonia Shipping Co. (Pty) Ltd. te Durban en zonder in de vaart te zijn gebracht of verdoopt, werd zij in oktober 1970 weer verkocht en vertrok na herstel op 4 december 1970 van Durban als ‘TIEN TAI’, na twee jaar te Durban te hebben gelegen.
