In 1902, the Moe Brothers sold Dauntless to L.B. Hastings and Captain Mann, of Port Townsend. They put Dauntless on the Port Townsend-Irondale run. A steel mill at Irondale caused that town to boom, and Dauntless, still capable of 11-knot speed, made quick trips on this route.
On December 30, 1923, a storm caused Dauntless to break loose from her moorings at Appletree Cove. The vessel was blown across the sound and washed up on the beach at Meadow Point, breaking up on the beach.
