Crete Joist

Trøndelag,Norway

B.K.I was built by Blackett`s Concrete Ships Ltd in Thornaby in England and was launched in 1920. She was sold to Norway and the company Christiania Portland Cementfabrik four years later and renamed Crete Joist. She was again sold in 1941 to Bergen Kullkompani. Rumors say she was used by the German Kriegsmarine, or organization Todt, under second world war, but little is known about her history. Outside Fevåg a barge stand beached which is believed to be Crete Joist. According to a few historic sources she is supposed to have hit ground  20.February 1943, and obviously abandoned.
