The hull of Racundra in her shed was safe, but all her sails, ropes, tackle and even the tiller was burnt or stolen ([[LAR|Life page 260]]). ''Racundra'' was sold in 1925. When they moved to the Lake District in April 1925 and bought [[Low Ludderburn]], he could not afford to keep her and advertised her in the Yachting Monthly for £300. He received an offer from the yachting writer K. Aldard Coles of £150 in cash and £100 guaranteed (which Wardale says was equivalent to c£7,000 in 1991, not a high price). This was accepted, though when Coles offered £220 Ransome thought it meant £220 in cash and £30 guaranteed. So to avoid a row he waived the £30 provided Coles agreed to rename her and not use the name in print (Coles called her ''Annette II''). She remained in British waters under several owners, including [[wikipedia:John Baldock|J M Baldock]] (MP) for about 20 years. In 1976 ocean venturer Rod Pickering found her in a rundown state in Tangier harbour, bought and restored her. In 1978 he left for England, but foundered on a reef north of Caracas ([[NBUS]] pages 38-41, 52).
