This stone sculpture is a memorial to the cargo vessel Rokta that wrecked off the Galleskjæra rocks in April 1938. The lifeboat Christian Bugge had a radio on board and the rescue operations were transmitted direct. Half of the 12-man crew were saved. Arnulf Øverland immortalised the rescue in his poem "The fishermen from Hustadvika".
