Damn, remember this coaster very well from my childhood. But at this moment cannot say anything more about the vessel that she sank somewhere in Finnish coast in late 80´s.

*Schulau* IMO 5315503. Steel single screw general cargo ship launched 23 August 1958 at Hamburg by J. J. Sietas Schiffswerft AG as hull no. 438 for Partenreederi MS "Schulau" (Hinrich Brunckhorst), Hamburg. 46.18m x 8.91 x 3.92; 487 gt, 285 nt; 6-cylinder Klockner-Humboldt-Deutz Diesel, 320mm x 450, 300-bhp. Later *Fortuna* (1972) for R/A Fiona, Mariehamn. That's the best I can do. Maybe one of our Finnish friends knows more.
