This is total BS the SS Matsonia was sold to Greek breakers in July 1977and broken up in February 1978 after a fire at the yard. The ship was not sunk by a Kraken. SS Malolo was? her first name and was changed to the SS Matsonia in 1937. The ship worked as a troop ship in WW2 and then back in service as a liner until she was sold as scrap in 1977. I built an RC model of this ship and know a hell of a lot about her since I had to study her plans and history in great detail to build it. http://www.ssmaritime.com/malolo-matsonia.htm

The kraken used tobe a tale about a large creature. So large than when a approaching ship came to close, and the beast being shy would dive into the water, it would cause a whirlpool strong enough to pull the boat and it's men under.

Hmm, lots of misinformation on these ships apparently. According to Wiki the Matsonia was built by Newport News Ship building in 1913 and sold in 1937, being renamed the Etolin. The Matson companies webpage names numerous ships purchased or built through the early years, Emma Claudina, Roderick Dhu, Enterprise, Lurline in 1908, Whilhelmina in 1910, Maui in 1917 (with no mention of a Matsonia in 1913) Manukai and Manulani in 1921, then the Malalo in 1927. They do mention the Malolo serving Hawaii in the same paragraph. The their passenger era section starts by naming their 4 "White Ships" Lurli... [More]
