Abandoned vessel drifting towards Sørøya
The wire used in the pulling of the "Kamaro» broke in the afternoon of Oct 26 when there were still two men on board left, so that the ship was actually not being pulled, however, there was sincere hope it would be salvaged. By 9 p.m. the vessel was 12 nautical miles northwest of Sørøya with the coast guard vessels "Harstad" and "Barentshav" following the drift. There was hope the ship might drift into quieter waters there so that salvage crews could reboard it to attach a new rope.
