Rocknes buoy


In the evening of January 19, 2004 the special vessel M/S Rocknes hit an unmarked, submerged bank in Vatlestraumen, close by my home. The ship went down with 18 of the crew still onboard. I'll never forget that night. Afterwards the authorities, somewhat belately, marked the bank with a buoy. This is it.

Some day later the ship the ship whas moved upside-down to another site where it was turned around. You can find some pictures of this transport here (the text is in Norwegian).
