"Ken-Rune"

Troms,Norway

The steamer Stubbenkammer was built by Stettiner Oderwerke AG in Germany, and was launched in May 1925. She sailed for the company Sassnitzer Dampfschiffahrts Gmbh before she was sold to Norway in 1929. In 1930 she was renamed Sætre and sailed in the Oslofjord. She was requisitioned by the Norwegian navy in September 1939, taken by the German Kriegsmarine in Tønsberg in April the year after, and luckily survived the war. After the war she changed owners and names several times; Masfjord, Aalfjord, and Blikøgutt in 1976. Three years later she was used as a pram for the Norwegian company Mathiassens Mekaniske Verksted in Trondheim under the name "Ken-Rune, but this is probably not her official name at the time. She was condemned and scuttled outside Harstad in 1989. And there the leads ends. From what we can gather, this wreck has not yet been found.
