A winter-picture taken on New Years Eve...
I have not been working that much on Svaap the last months, and it is for a reason.
Feel like I have been cheating on her... but I actually stumbeled over a rare pilot cutter that was in need of immediate care, and it is a significantly important boat in the Norwegian maritime heritage.
A long story made as short as possible (for now); I took over the boat (LOA 11,5m, beam 4,33m, draft 1,9m, 16 tons, gaff rig.
Mabye I'll make a similar project-description as I am with Svaap.
Svaap will remain in my family, and I will finish her as planned. I hope that my children will like to sail her, and that they might take care of her together with my brother, sister and parents.
I have done some work on her lately.
I started on the hatch on the foredeck yesterday;
I hope to complete the frame for the hatch next week, and start to bend plywood for the cover.
