Fredrikshald 3 was a coastal steamer laid down by Fredrikstad Mekaniske Verksted in Norway, and was launched in August 1900. She was completed and delivered to the company Fredrikshalds Dampskibsselskab three months later. She changed owners and names a couple of times during her career, and had a diesel engine installed in 1961, and she sailed for Mr. Solheim in Arendal as Mosvik from 1981. Under a journey from Borge to Darsun loaded with constriction blocks and gravel, her cargo shifted and she sank about 1,5 nautical miles south of Ryvingen light. According to reports from local divers, the battered remains of her rest today in shallow waters.
