On September 18, 1921the Malden collided with the Jouaney while sailing in a dense fog off Montauk point. According to the New York Times "The Malden was so badly damaged that water began to pour into the forward hold"  "The Malden was ten miles off the Point at the time of the collision and the captain decided that his ship was in danger of sinking, the crew with the exception of himself and two deck hands were taken aboard the Jouaney." The Coast Guard latter rescued the remaining crew before the Malden slipped beneath the waves.
