Hamo

Trøndelag,Norway

Hamo was built by Mjellem & Karlsen AS in Bergen and was launched in June 1929. She was used as a local ferry by the Norwegian company Hardanger Søndhordlanske Dampskipsselskap and in 1962 she was sold and rebuilt as a coastal freighter. In December 1983 she sank at the pier of Statland wharf in the Namsfjord. Attempts to drag the wreck out to deeper waters and clear the ship lane failed, and the whole project had to be abandoned. The wreck rest today on a depth of approx 8 to 15 meter outside the pier of the old wharf.
