Norwegian sailor Tore Martin Odson b.1867
I am looking for a marriage record for the Norwegian sailor, Tore/Thor Martin Odson/Oddsen, born on 27 March 1867 in Nedstrand parish, Rogaland County, Norway.

Greenland Disaster
Would someone explain the term "pans" of seals mentioned in the Greenland Disaster of 1898? I thought I had it figured out until "One of these pans creased her, cutting her bottom out and yet supporting her till the ice opened releasing her to sink like a stone."

Wiki doesn't know what a pan is when relating the word to seals, nor can I find any other definition for it. Thanks for any help.
