Another interesting portrait, with information.

We see a Maschinen-Obermaat of the 1. Komp. Marine-Stabsabteilung Festungskommandantur LS Gotenhafen [1st Coy Navy Staff Unit of the Garrison Administration Gotenhafen - presenty named Gdynia], the photo is dated 5 April 1940. Interesting to note the crossed anchors below the letter "O" (for "Ostsee"), the early style cap with woven roundel and oak leaves. Also interesting to see his ribbon bar, which denotes that he is from Austria, with 2 medals for bravery in the Great War.

A large number of these men seem to be much older than their Heer counterparts.

Indeed Paul, you will see the same thing in the medical area - the medics are often older models..I have a few SB and WP from medics born in 1899 and 1907 as a couple of examples.

When I read the information about the "K", both on the internet and in my books, I would consider it safe to conclude that it is assumed to be "Kanal" based troops, but this is not (yet) supported by any Kriegsmarine regulation or official order.

On further notice, I agree with Slicht & Angolia, that the "K" Schulterklappe is probably dating from the Reichsmarine.

"Kanal" seems odd to me, because the Germans did not get to the Kanal before June 1940, and by then all tactical information (Roman numbers and letters) had been removed from the Naval Schulterklappen for reasons of security. So why add tactical information when a year before all these characters were removed?

The "K" from the Reichsmarine would indicate "Küste", this could be Küstenverteidigung or Küstenartillerieschule. The Schulterklappe could have been worn in the early days of the Kriegsmarine, but fact is, that it does not show up in any KM regulation (so far).

So, my educated guess would be, as the "K" is visible only on one person, that he is a reservist wearing his old Schulterklappe. I know nothing about large or smaller "K".

Another set of shoulderboards: VI. Marine-Artillerie-Abteilung [6th Naval (Coastal) Artillery Battalion], stationed in Emden. This type of shoulder boards were used until 26-08-1939.
