About 1965 on the way from Split to Italy loaded with toxic cargo had problems at heavy sea. Some of crew members are dead?

Thank you Croships and Submariner. Submariner, thanks for compliments, too. Sincerely,
Ivan T.

Ivan, pls be informed that back in 2003 all Croatian merchant ships changed Roman number to Croatian words in their names. So GUSAR I became GUSAR JEDAN. Fishing vessels were exempt from this change of names.
Officially she was built in 1950 as she was completed in that year. A year of work commencing and a year of launching couldn’t be considered as a year of built.
BTW The very impressive photo and the very sad scene!

Submariner, thank you, but is it exactly "GUSAR I" or "GUSAR JEDAN"? (A note for those who do not speak Croatian: "jedan" means "one".) And, also, what should be stated as the building year then? 1943? 1944? 1950?

Ivan, details provided by Croships need to be corrected.
-The name of vessel is GUSAR JEDAN
-Ship’s papers show that she was built in 1950 at Piran, Yugoslavia (now Slovenia) by Piranske Ladjedelnice
-Her building commenced in 1943 at Mali Lošinj and she was launched in 1944 as BRUNA Z.
-The bare hull was towed in 1945 to Piran and finally completed in 1950 under name BOROVNIK

A Better English Translation

"If this is the sailing ship at Sveti Kajo (a place near Split, meaning "Saint Kajo"), then this is a ship whose name was Gusar (meaning "pirate") and was built in 1943 in Italy, first named Bruno Z. In 1944 the ship was was seized (by communist government), and in 1950 assigned to CoastalTrade Split and named Borovnik. After 1970 the owner of the ship was Zora Maritime Cooperatives (Zora means "dawn"), with the name remained the same. In 1980 the ship was sold to Makaus and Parunov and gets the name Gusar (means "pirate"). The CRS (Croatian Register of Ships) refers to Parunov as the sole owner . I hope I helped a little."

Thank you very much Croships and Ken Smith. The ship is indeed that one.

Kind regards,

Ivan T.
