Bonita

Sweden,Europe

Bonita was on a journey from Luleaa to Haltenau loaded with iron ore when she collided with the steamer Bojan 14.October 1941. Because of the war, all vessels sail through these waters almost without any lights on, and the Swedish ship Bojan does not have time to steer clear of Bonita. The accident occur nine nautical miles south of Trelleborg, and in the collision the port side of her is torn open. Of the crew of 24 men, only the Captain S. Farup and three men survives. The wreck rest today on a depth of 35 to 42 meter southeast of Trelleborg.
