Inger Seks


Wascana was built in Middlesbrough in England, and was launched in 1913. She survived first world war, and ended up in Norwegians hands as Inger Seks with Bergen as port of registry. After the German invasion of Norway in 1940, she was requisitioned by Kriegsmarine and sailed under German flag. She hit ground in the Instefjord 22.April 1945and was spotted and attacked by British airplanes the following day. It's been said that she was burning for several days after the attack before she disappeared in the deep. The wreck rest today on a depth of 26 to 70 meter southeast of Kjevika.
