The 19 meter long fishing vessel Myntevik ran aground near Stokkøya, Norway. The Myntevik had grounded on a steep slope and developed a heavy list to port. The two crew alerted authorities who dispatched a rescue helicopter and a NSSR lifeboat to the scene. The two crew put on the survival suits and prepared to be evacuated. A helicopter arrived first, but the crew elected to wait for the lifeboat.
Later when the lifeboat arrived on scene, it was able to quickly pull the Myntevik free assisted by the rising tide. The trawler sustained some damage and required a tow back to Stokkøya. The lifeboat pulled the Myntevik back to port where divers inspected the fishing vessel. No reports of injuries and no pollution released.
