It's very hard to find anything about the history of the MTB-wrecks in the "Lunkebugt". The only thing, that seems to be for sure is, that the ships were at the shipyard "Gl. Haugesund", located at "Svenborgsund", before they were sunken by the germans themselves, at the end of the 2nd. Worldwar, 1945.
It's remarkable, that there are no signs of weapons at the wrecks. Were the ships build at the Danish shipyard or were they just in for a renovation?
The diesel-engines is told to be raised just a while after the sinking in 1945?
The wrecks are easily dived, since they are located in a rather protected area against wind and weather. The depth is maximum 10 meters, but the visibility is mostly poor, what means a couble of meters or less.
The wrecks were found by the diveclub "Delfinen" in "Svenborg", 1995, after a week with intensive searching.
The club has a nice collection of goods from the wrecks. More of them can be seen in an article of the magazine" DYK" July, 2000.
