    1. Translated from Wikipedia:

      Ulrich Finsterwalde - one of the two tankers twin reinforced concrete built in Darłówko. The second name was Karl Finsterwalde.
      History and cruises
      The first flight took two ships in August 1944 year. He belonged to the owner of Szczecin Lubberl & Co. Reederei.
      The ship was 90 meters long, 15 meters wide and 6.5 meters draft and capacity of 2,947 GRT and was intended for the transport of synthetic fuel from refineries in the Police.
      Was bombed on March 20 1945 year by the Soviet Air Force in the port of Szczecin.
      After the war, the wreck was towed to Inoujścia and sunk. At the end of the seventies and eighties of the twentieth century by the yard circle divers A. Warski wreck was raised and began his transportation to the Dabie , where he was used as a swimming pool. However, for technical reasons, with the idea the ship was stopped and was again transported to Inoujścia, which ran aground and is a tourist attraction.
