Borregaard 3

Viken,Norway

The barge Borregård 3 was under tow from Drammen to Sarpsborg in ballast 22 December 1951, when the cable broke south of Hankø. She drifted helplessly towards Dekningsskjær and hit ground soon after. In the days that followed the rescue and salvage vessel Ula arrived, but the position on the reef and the damages to her hull made any rescue impossible. Local divers in Hankø claim to have found the wreck
