I hope everyone has got rid of their viruses and are ready to continue where we left.......

I just recieved some info on Hisų. It was indeed late, but I hope you still find it interesting!

Measures in English feet: L=84,4 W=22,7 D=11,7.

Hisų was built in 1908 and only fitted with sails. In 1912 she got a "Type 35" steamengine.

In 1916, she had her first major conversion in aalesund.

In 1931, she got electric light.

In 1933, a new Skadia semidiesel engine was installed
She also got a emergency motor (8 hp Sol engine)

When Hisų was captured by "Nordmark", a prize crew took the boat to shore, while the Norwegian crew had to take various jobs onboard Nordmark. When they arrived Trondheim, the Norwegian crew got paid for every day they had worked onboard.

Hope this was of some interest......
