    Default Joining The Norwegian Coastal Federation Bodø

    Well I decided to join Joining The Norwegian Coastal Federation in Bodø https://www.kysten.no/ (scroll to bottom of page for english)

    They are dedicated to reservation of Norwegian coastal culture, and that ofcourse includes wooden boats.

    They have some boats including a 31 ft. åttring nordlandsboat. I will be learning to sail the åttring this spring, and now I participate in making it ready for the season. I will use this thread to share some photos of this boat and other activities.

    Today we pulled "Hæringen" out of the shed. It will be launched in a few days, and ready for sailing next week
