    Hey Fred. My wife and I will be in Bodo for a few hours in November as part of our cruise. Is the shop accessible in November? Any other sights we shouldn't miss in the short time we have?

    Gary, we meet at the shop to work on the boats each Tuesday, but I also have the key, so it is possible to give you a guided tour in the shop. Do you know how many hours you spend in Bodø, and what time of the day? You can pm me to discuss the options.

    Speaking of other sight also depends on the time you have. In November the days are short here. Saltstraumen maelstrom is a popular sight, and a flight museum might interest you too.

    Regards Fred

    fitting the scarfs on the keel and the aft stem first, before we shape the rest of the new aft keel. We are really taking it slowly, and drink a lot of coffe too. The scarf must be adjusted and tested many times to get the right angels and hight. Wery interesting work

    More photos from the work going on in the shed. Almost finished with the scarfs on the new keel part. Also photo of one of the members "halvfjerderømming" This boat is more than 100 years old and soon restored. The size of this boat is between the seksring/treroing I have, and the "åttring" we are working on. about 24 feet long.
