Report on marine accident - Nordavind grounding at Hakkelskjæret, Hordaland county 23 November 2018

At 10.28 on 23 November 2018, the dive boat Nordavind hit Hakkelskjæret skerry in the Fensfjord/Feiefjord. The vessel was found in January 2019 at a depth of approximately 77 metres, and was raised on 23 February 2019. The operator of the vessel is still missing.

The AIBN has not made any observations or findings that can provide a basis for describing what happened or why the accident happened. The operator was on the phone when the accident happened, and the sun was low in the sky. The possibility that these factors may have affected the operator’s visibility and attentiveness cannot be ruled out.

This report is in Norwegian only.

No safety recommendation is issued in connection with this investigation.
