    What a GREAT day for the coastal federation. We picked up the brand new "treroing" build by Kai Linde. The boat is sponsored by banking funds that want to support boatbuilding traditions in Norway.

    The boat is buildt after measurments from a more than 100 years old Nordlandsboat, that also is a "krumstevning" With a more rounded stem than later boats.

    It will be rigged with a square sail, and need some more oil and paint before launchin. The launching will be a bigger event...

    More photos and also video of this beauty later. Last photo in the shed together with the 22 ft. åfjords-boat, that got some new oil and paint, and now back on water.

    For different reasons it took a bit longer than expected to get the new boat ready for the water, but last sunday we finally launched the the boat we now call "Svartoksen" 22 ft. "treroing" It sailed great, and my contribution was the roping on the square sail. I was happy the boatbuilder approved it. Now we have a few weeks trying to learn more and sail this beauty, before the winter sets inn. It will be stored on our shed together with the other boats the federation have.

    How do they stay upright with no deep keel? Heavy ballast or do they only sail down wind? I am not a sailor.

    They are sailing upwind in the video...

    One answer to your question is the 'living ballast' helps to balance the boat. The rest is hull shape and centre of gravity, I suppose.

    The Shetland boats used to carry beach boulders for ballast, and threw them out as they caught fish.

    Yes we have 100 to 150 kg. with round stones as ballast. Yesterday me and my friend sailed in 10-14 ms winds (gusty) witht the reef set inn, Speed up to 6 knts. We had a thrill, and was very active moving veight. The boat also get more stable as speed increase. because og increased water-preassure under the hull.

    The season ended for the åttring Hæringen. A good gang worked to get it out of water and in to the shed.

    Hey Fred. Nice looking ship there. I bought my son a wooden model kit of a very similar craft (with the house aft) from the WB store. He's just getting started now but seems excited about it and the prospect of visiting Norway. Maybe we'll be able to travel again before I can't.

    We're supposed to have a La Nina winter and, for Montana, that means wet and snowy. Last La Nina winter (2018/2019) was the snowiest on record in Billings. I hope my new puppy enjoys the snow.

    Take care and stay safe.

    Gary
