Dølen ( I )


The steamer Dølen was a tug boat laid down at Fredrikstad Mekaniske Verksted, and was launched in 1909. She did service with towing timber and dredging on lake Mjøsa until the early 1960's. In 1962 she was taken out of service and laid up near Minnesund. Six years later, in April 1968, she sprung and sank in shallow water. The wreck rest today on her keel on a depth of 5 to 15 meter north of Fremmingøya.
