Boringia went down in the deep northwest of Lysegrunden 13. August 1975  under a journey from Nørresund to Nexø loaded with 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 abandon ship. The Danish torpedo boat Ørnen arrived 03:00 to assist, but nn hour later a big crash could be heard when the cargo shifted. This was the death sentence for Boringia and shortly after she disappeared in the deep. The wreck rest today on a depth of 19 to 28 meter northwest of Tisvilde.
