Roslagen

Vestland,Norway

Roslagen was rigged down to a barge according to some sources, others state she was a registered motor vessel. It might be the former M/S Guri built in 1923 who was stricken from the official lists in 1999, but we have not been able to verify this. From mainstream media, which is often a source of questionable information, we can read that she capsized while she loaded gravel outside Halsvik 7.November 2000. According to the NSD she measured 217 gross tons which is very close to the tonnage of Guri. The wreck rest today on a depth of 25 meter outside the pier at Wergeland Halsvik.
