    Another Collin Archer replica, but this one without the rigging and not in the same good shape:

    The next two along looks a bit like old pirate boats and have been shown "naked" eralier:

    An old fishing boat rigged up with sails:

    And of course the Heland, now without the winter cover:


      Maintaining and operating these kinds of wooden veterans is no easy task. A former colleague of mine bought a "skøyte" a handful years ago, and eventually abandoned the whole remaining restoration process when he discovered rotting timber in the entire construction. He now has a steel veteran boat.

      I must also say that I truly admire people with time, passion and skills to restore and maintain ships like this: it's a closely nit family of enthusiasts for sure.
