Looking for some information about the whaler "Gvas 2" built at Framnæs mek. Verksted, Sandefjord, in 1926.
Hired by the Royal Navy in 1940. Anybody who have some details about her warservice? Laid up in 1944 with damage. What damage?
Sold in 1948 and renamed "Jadar". According to Siri, bought by Kaspar Nilsen, Sand. The ship was later on owned by Brødrene Anda, Stavanger. Was she bought by Kaspar Nilsen in the first place and then shortly afterwards resold to Brødrene Anda? "Jadar" is a typical name on ships owned by Anda.
Sold again in 1963 and renamed "Karoløs". What was her final fate?
Thanks in advance for all possible help.
