Tinnsjø

Rogaland,Norway

Trold was a tug boat built by Akers Mekaniske Verkstad in Kristiania as yard number 115, and was launched in 1887 for the Norwegian company Fredrikstad Kullcompagnie. She was rebuilt to a coastal freighter two years later and renamed Tinnsjø and sailed for Tinn Dampskibselskap in Moss.She changed hands several times during her career, and last registered owner is listed as Mr. Dahl in Haugesund. She was stricken from the ship lists in 1978, and sank while she laid at anchor, or as some sources claim, scuttled as a breakwater in 1982. The wreck rest today on her starboard side, still visible above the waterline close to shore in Hafrsfjord.
