Outside Oslo city lies the island of Gressholmen, only five minutes with boat from Oslo harbor. The island has for years been a place for condemned boats, and several has been laid up and gone down here On the east side of Gressholmen lies a large buoy ( approx 2x1 m in size ), and by following the mooring down in the deep, you will get down to six different wrecks on a depth of 15 to 20 meter. The two largest and maybe the most interesting, are the wrecks of a steel barge with a length of approx 35-40 meter, and a former open decked restaurant boat of almost the same size. The identity of these wrecks is quite a mystery...
