The Karmoy was built in Alloa (Scotland) in 1921 and was around 295 feet long with a beam of 43 feet. After the German invasion of Norway, she was requisitioned by the Germans and used as a general gargo transporter between Germany and Norway. On the 28th of October 1940 she was sunk outside Lodigen by aircraft from the British Carrier Implacable.
On this dive we anchored into the stern where there is the remains of a ships wheel. that was quite a sight, even though its worn away quite a bit.Over the stern down towards the bottom, is the rudder and the bronze shank where the prop was. There is a whole tangle of stuff at the stern, and after I had a good poke around there I went briefly into the holds. Inside the stern are rows of iron portholes with brass butterfly nuts. Uptop heading towards the bow, there were lots of railings, davits, and some nice wooded stairs leading up to the deck. I got to the bows first, so had it to myself. It looked really good with shoals of small fish all over it. There are lots of jelly fish some small, others huge with long trailing tentacles that could give a nasty sting. You get the same sort in Scotland.Nice dive, but once again not long enough.
