Boringia

Kattegat,Europe

Boringia went down in the deep northwest of Lysegrunden in Kattegat in Agust 1975. She was on a journey from Nørresund to Nexø loaded with 220 tons of concrete and a crew of three men. At midnight she had arrived in Kattegat, when the captain was rushed up to the bridge. Boringia`s bow wouldn't straighten up because of the heavy cargo and the water had started to flood her. Emergency signals were sent and the crew started to prepare to abandon ship. The Danish torpedo boat Ørnen arrived 03:00, and then the whole bow was under water. An hour later a big crash could be heard when the heavy cargo loosened and slammed into the cargo room. This was the depth sentence for Boringia and shortly after she disappeared in the deep. The remains rest today on a depth of 20 to 30 meter northwest of Tisvilde.
