Scott

Telemark,Norway

The Norwegian steamer Scott was built in 1897 for J.A.Larsen in Skien, and disappeared in the deep barely two years after she was launched. She ran aground on Finnebåene in the Langesundfjord 24.March 1899 under strong winds from south and heavy snow. She was slowly broken down by heavy waves after the grounding, and some of her inventory and other wreck debris was salvaged from later. Today its very little left of the wreck, and the few remains of her rest on a depth of 16 to 25 at the southern side of Finnebåene.
