Vibran II

Telemark,Norway

The steamer Vibran was built in Rosendal in Norway and was launched in August 1891. She changed owners several times in her career and was renamed to Vibran II in 1935. After many years in service, she was meant to be scrapped, but was instead rigged down to a barge and used for another 24 years. While she laid at anchor in Skien she sank at the pier where she was moored up in 1959. The wreck is still there, well buried in the mud inside the harbor.
