Here she is as the Swedish SAMO, looking a little unsteady off Goole on 15/3/1990.
She grounded on the falling tide while trying to enter the lock, and was re-floated on the next tide.

I think this would be her second stint as SAMO, before being renamed SCOT VENTURE.

'A little unsteady', how dare you say that, this is a perfectly safe berth, just waiting for the tide off Goole!

Her greater infamy was on 23/11/1988 when she had a wee argument with Skelton Railway Bridge. One of the fixed spans rather stupidly refused to swing for her ...

Her status in Equasis as In casualty or repairing (since 07/10/2014) seems somewhat optimistic in view of the following casualty report from January 2015 Marine News:
FORTUNA S * (7016383) (Alpina -14, Karin -02, Samo -90, Scot Venture -90, Samo -90,
Anja -86, Novia -85, Mercia -81, Brage -79), 2,135/70 – Moldova flag general cargo ship
owned by Fortuna Ship and Trading Ltd, Romania. Stranded and sank in heavy weather at
entrance to the approach channel five miles east of Sulina, Romania in position 45.08N,
029.46E on 7/10/2014 whilst on voyage from Bandirma to Galati, Romania with a cargo of
salt. Crew and pilot taken off by helicopter.

Link to her current situation.
Do not think she will be visiting Goole again
