KNM Torp

Møre & Romsdal,Norway

KNM Torp became a victim for the storm that raged in Kristiansund 1 January 1992. In the chaos the rescue cruiser Ada Waage was sent out to help the crew on a stranded freighter outside Kristiansund, when Torp suddenly comes drifting in the sea without a crew. Torp had laid at anchor, but in the strong winds the mooring had been teared of and she now drifted around helplessly. Attempts to tow her to safety failed as the cable lbroke and again she drifted away out of sight A few days later rumors started to circulate that KNM Torp had been found by divers at Kvitnes lighthouse, and this proved to be correct. The wreck rest today on her keel as a classic Donald Duck on a depth of approx 12 to 26 meter next to Kvitnes in Nordsundet.
