Cargo unloaded and ship sent to repair yard
2270 tons of gravel from Seljestokken in Flora were unloaded from Mar 23 to 25 from the "Selvaagsund" in Gunnhildvågen in Florø. Inspectors of Sjøfartsdirektoratet and the classification society DNV GL were aboard the ship to assess the damage. The ship was permitted to continue to a yard in Nordmøre for repairs of the bow damage. There was no spill of the 54 tons diesel on board.

Grounded ship refloated
On Mar 23 at 10.50 a.m. the Norwegian patrol boat “Tor” (IMO-No.: 9353369) jointly with the tug "Silex" (IMO-No.: 9085194) managed to refloat the "Selvaagsund" north of Fedje in Ytre Sula. The lifeboat "K.G. Jpesen" had already departed the previous evening, while the Coast Guard remained on site until it was all settled. The shipping company had hired a diving boat as the vessel had to be sealed before it could be pulled off. The salvage went smoothly and that the ship was now heading to Florø, since 4.30 p.m. under own power with 6-7 knots, being escorted by the tug, where divers were to inspect the full extent of damage.
