Rensfjord was a motorized barge laid down by Ludwig Bauer & Sohn in Larvik  with a concrete hull, and was launched in 1944 for the German Transportflotte Speer. She was put in service for the Germans under the name Dankmar, and she survived the war unharmed. After a few years laid up outside Bergen, she was bought by Ole T. Flakke in Trøndelag in 1951. She was converted to a coastal freighter and renamed to Rensfjord, and was delivered to her new owner in 1952. Three years later she sank in Harstad harbor, but was re-floated and sold to the company Einvik AS the year after. Under a journey from Salten to Oslo loaded with wood, she hit ground and wrecked at Krosskjæret outside Hongsand 1. December 1956. Parts of the battered wreck is still visible on the surface.
