    We are in route to get the åttring on water this season. Some of our retired members, are going to take som extra man-hours in the shop, to get it finished in time for a sailing course in may.

    Nothing beats the lines on the stem on a Nordlandsboat! The repairs are done and our åttring Hæringen will be on water in two weeks. Next winter we start on other smaller boats we have in the shed.

    I really like the rudder attachment, so I show you some photos. The rudder is made of plywood, so I think we need to replace it with solid wood.

    Every tuesday I spend in Bodø with the coastal federation boats. The plan was to sail the åttring today, but we where only two sailors today, so instead we joined a J80 regatta sailboat for the tuesday regatta. It was fun too, but I took this shot of the "fembøring" that was in the harbor. Some asked earlier in the thread if the fembøring used wires or ropes for the stays. I guess the photo gives the answer.

    Ben I took some photos of the rig if you are interested I can post them here, and also describe some details. We will do some work on it too to make it better. The boat has not been ysed for some years, but now it will be in the Marina next to the Åttring all summer.

    Here is a video of yesterdays sailing:

    Fred,
    Thanks for posting the video. My boat is just a little smaller than yours, a 2 1/2 rom færing with a råseil. I'd really like to find some video on sailing a square sailed small boat. I did pick up the little book Learning to sail open traditional boats. I suppose I can spend the winter translating it as a way to learn Norse!
