Description"Kasko was a steel, 628 ton, two-masted, Swedish-registered steamship and in February 1920 while en-route from Gothenburg to the Tees in thick-fog and heavy seas it was stranded on Black Hall Rocks. The crew took to a boat and reached the shore safely but, despite repeated efforts to pull the ship clear, it stayed fast on the rocks and eventually broke up. It lies in pieces in shallow water at NZ475389 and parts of the boiler and some ribs can often be seen.
