It is the 28. September 2014. It is Sunday and the first autumn storm is coming. The old fishingboat MK Nordsjø lies in her mooring as usual. The owner looks out of the window just before the first cup of coffee – something is terrible wrong !

What will two years below the surface do to a boat ? Mk Nordsjø sank in an autumn storm in the village Aun just outside Harstad in Northern Norway. We have visited the wreck on regular basis during these two years. See for yourself how fast decay sets in. Where fish once was taken on board and out of the sea, it now has full control over the boat.

MK Nordsjø has been the livelihood of the families than owned it for decades. In 1962 it was filmed while attending the annual «Lofotfiske» in Lofoten. Here is a link to the Filmavisen
