Am 17./18. Oktober 1939 wird das Vorpostenboot V 805 (SKOLPENBANK = PG 397, Norddeutsche Hochseefischerei AG) in der Nordsee als überfällig gemeldet. Die Position des Bootes ist die Südostecke des Warngebietes nördlich der niederländischen Insel Schiermonnikoog. Es besteht die Möglichkeit des Auflaufens auf eine eigene oder eine feindliche Mine. Auch die Versenkung durch ein U-Boot wird in Betracht gezogen. Vorsorglich wird das Gebiet als minenverdächtig erklärt und eine Nachprüfung des Gebietes auf feindliche Minen angeordnet, die aber zunächst wegen der ungünstigen Wetterlage nicht möglich ist. Später werden in weitem Umkreis keine Minen gefunden. Der Verlust des Vorpostenbootes beschäftigt die Kriegsmarine noch Monate später, wie folgender Eintrag im KTB vom 13. Februar 1940 aufzeigt: "Da hinsichtlich des Verlustes des s. Zt. vermißten Vorpostenbootes V 805 die Möglichkeit des Enterns durch den Gegner nicht von der Hand zu weisen ist, ordnet der Chef Skl. an, daß Vorpostenboote grundsätzlich nur noch mit den unbedingt erforderlichen Verschlußsachen auszurüsten sind (Maßnahme ist hinsichtlich Funk-Unterlagen bereits seit langem durchgeführt)."

07/10/1971 Steel Vendor SS [+1971] wreck
Steel Vendor SS [+1971]On 10/5, with the vessel 700 miles south of Hong Kong with a cargo of cement, both boilers lost water and the starboard one was cut out, although it was uncertain which one was leaking.The situation was perilous. Dead in the water in the South China Sea, the vessel was wallowing and rolling up to 40 degrees in heavy seas and typhoon winds. Her bilges were deep with water and some was sloshing over the engine room deck plates. In these conditions the engineers strove to restore the plant by plugging more leaks. Satisfied, they commenced filling the port boiler but leaving the starboard one closed off. In time, the port fires were relit and it was seen that water was rising in the starboard boiler whilst dropping in the port heater. A boiler feedline had been inadvertently left open. So again the port boiler was closed down and with it a loss of suction by the turbine feed pumps.On the morning of 10/7 the heater was again filled and with it came the hope that steaming on limited revolutions would be possible by the afternoon. At the same time observations enabled her crew to get a navigational fix as the sun broke through for the first time in 4 days. As these were being made, breaking white water of a reef was seen ahead and it was found that their true position was 90 miles south of the dead-reckoning one.As the wind and seas set the vessel inexorably toward the reef, a distress message was dispatched and the work to restore engine power was accelerated. At 13.45 hours, with no power to operate the windlass, the port anchor was let out on the handbrake; but the brake failed and the chain just ran out to the end. At first it had no effect, then it touched and held, with the reef just 400 yards away. Soon it broke ground and began to drag. Anticipating the main engine to be operative at any minute and that two anchors would finish the chances of a successful manuever, the starboard one was not used. Then, just as the bridge was informed that the main engine was capable of slow revolutions, the ship slammed into the Loaita Bank Reef, near Spratly Island in position 10.43 N, 114.12 E. Badly holed and pinioned by rocks, each roll in the heavy seas took her further on to the reef.At 14.35 hours a helicopter from the British Aircraft Carrier HMS Eagle appeared and it was decided to evacuate the stricken ship's crew by this means. An hour later, when the Master departed his ship, she was listing badly, was hogged at No. 3 hold and had fractures in the plating.Later, a sighting from the air showed the ship to be broken in two and flooded.
