She sailed early days of Porvoo and other ports in Kotka, Finland ports carrying loaded with limestone, timber, and sugar beets. 1944 the ship was ordered to forced introduction to the Soviet Union. To avoid this, the vessel was deliberately sink to the seabed. Later, the schooner was in Kemiö owned recreational vessel in the 1960s and ended up in our current home port in New Town in 1999. In this case, the ship was restored to seaworthy.

Nice history of this ship - it reminds me of a pirate ship.

@Ruthiebear: These ships were still in the 60 early much in use. They transported a variety of cargo, up to the sand for construction sites. Today the remaining are in the tourism use.
