After the damages she got after the accident earlier, she had taken in to much water for the pumps alone to keep her afloat and they had to abandon ship. The crew got away from the accident without injuries. The wreck was found in 1985 by Sandefjord dive club on a depth of 45 to 50 meter approx 150 meter from shore north of Veierland.
