The Sterk was a 760brt Norwegian stone carrier built in 1880. She was a steamship measuring 57x8 metres. In November 1909 she hit rocks during bad weather, and sank soon after. She was carrying limestone at the time.
The wreck is upright with a slight list to starboard. She lies at a shallow angle to the shore on a stony seabed, with the bows nearest in 25m and the stern in 37m. She stands about 4-5m clear of the seabed. The hull is intact but much of the superstructure has collapsed. There are passages to swim through, and the engines and propeller are visible. There is a fair amount of encrusting life, making the Sterk somewhat reminiscent of a Sound of Mull wreck (with better visibility).
The Sterk lies in a strongly tidal area. Slack water occurs at Måløy HW/LW -0130. The wreck is diveable for half an hour or so either side of slack.
