The Kinn was a 218brt Norwegian ship built in Sweden in 1890. She measured 30x7x3m and had a compound steam engine. She hit rocks in March 1923 and sank immediately. This wreck is also known as the Reksty.

The wreck lies on a muddy bank, and visibility can be poor, particularly if there are clumsy finners about. Close to the wreck is a line of four old cars with a VW minibus at the E end and a Cortina at the W end. The Cortina is the closest to the Kinn. The mast has been removed because it was a hazard to shipping. The wreck is in fair condition for its age.
