Small corrections:
1920 Kari Solmundarson RE 153 (Owner Hf. Kari, Reykjavik)
1924 Kari Solmundarson GK 153 (company moved its base to Videy, just outside Reykjavik)
1932 Kari RE 111 (owner Hf. Alliance Reykjavik.)

First skipper, Adalsteinn Palsson (1920-7/1925), (the first registration number was his personal preference. RE 111 was also a personal preference, by Alliances manager.) Unused numbers could be reused upon request in Iceland. In Boulogne, France, numbers were issued in strict chronological order, no exceptions, a ship moved temporary to other ports, got a new number on return. What was the practice in Britain?

U.K. registrations were re-usable if available.

Wasn't it Barmur that played a special role the 'Klaksvík-conflict' in 1953-54 between the locals and the authorities? It was used to blocade/block the harbour (laden with dynamite) together with other vessels.

BARMUR was not very succesful as a fishing vessel. But right, as blocade vessel (with dynamite or not) pretty good. There is a famous picture, with a man sitting on the dock of the bay with a rifel in his hand. BARMUR in the background.
The doctor war in Klaksvík !! Can´t find the picture in moment. Anybody else.
