Straight from russiaflot.ru chronicles:
2 September 19412 сентября 1941
В районе о. Валаам наш ска МО захватил катер противника.
Soviet MO boats captured an enemy boat at Valamo island (Ladoga Lake).
Full capture/seizure make the claim quite solid, it could have been
1) Some small/liason boat (in a similar way of capture of "E-32" on 25/Aug/42, presence of POWs etc.
2) Local fishing boat?
I have yet to ask russians or more details.

Finnish war diaries do not record any kind of vessel sent to Valamo and no losses of any kind on September 2, 1941. The first Finnish reconnaissance force reached Valamo on September 20, 1941.
