M/S Seattle was a big german own goal at the 2nd. worldwar. At night, before the 9th. of April, 1940, the ship arrived at the fjord of Kr. Sand in foggy weather.
The crew at M/S Seattle did not knew about the germans excistens in the area.The crew at M/S Seattle meet something they belived to be the english fleet, why they try to escape. The germans think, that the ship (M/S Seattle) is an allied ship, why they starts an attack.
Norwegian canonforces at the coast, recognizes all ships as germans, and M/S Seattle is now captured in crossfire by it's own country and norwegian canons at the coast. The norwegian destroyer "Gyller" gives the M/S Seattle it's deathblow and the ship is burning in 5 days, before it sinks into the deep, 80 meters below the surface.
In 1988 the wreck is found by norwegian divers and in a short time, M/S Seattle is one of the most popular and visited wrecks in Norway. Several objects are raised from the wreck. Among other things, a 70 kg. heavy shipbell.
Most divers have to stay at the rear end of the wreck or at the highest part of the superstructure (25 to 40 meters). The rest is only reachable by trimix, if you want to do it the safe way. Technical diving with the demanding skills and education.
