MS Torsholm was built in Landskrona 1950. She was designed to fit into the locks of the old canal system. This restriction limited the size of the ship to less than about 3.000 ton dw. The speed was 12 knots. I signed on Torsholm in Gothenburg on the 11th of June. In winter time when the seaway to the Great Lakes was closed we called at ports in Nova Scotia and the US east coast. Crossing the North Atlantic with a ship like Torsholm was very trying during winter time.
