Rick Bastien acquired the vessel and owned her until 2007, when she was sold to Wayne Siddall & Sons of Lowbanks, ON. While owned by the Bastiens, the Lori B. was once lengthened and widened, and later rebuilt with a new bow and pilothouse in 1987. In 1988 she was again lengthened with the addition of a new bow. In 1995 she was rebuilt as well. Scruton Marine Services of Port Dover, ON acquired the fish tug in 2010, and converted her for use as a workboat. She was renamed Silt-Master in 2011.
