C.A. Larsen

Flk C.A. Larsen (1926) with three catchers outside Steward Island after running aground on the way north from the Ross Sea in nice weather 21/2-1928.
It succeeded to pull the ship off the ground. The ship could go its own steam and was set up on a sandbar. The ship and about 90% the cargo was salvaged. Next season, the ship was in the Ross Sea.
After World War II sold to Whaling Company Antarctic AS in Tønsberg and renamed Antarctic.

Cheynes III

Cheynes III

Whaling boat Cheynes III ex Looma III -63 ex Thorgrim -62 built in 1947.
These catchers was not scratched by the ice when they went in warm waters off the west coast of Australia, so all this rusty enough rather the result of lack of maintenance. I 1978 whaling was outside Australia banned and the boat was laid up. I 1982 she was sunk outside Albany and is today a destination for wreck divers.
