    The T/O Winner will get a ride on the Hawk from Lewis to Aliang, which make perfect sense: https://gcaptain.com/semi-submersibl...h-shipbreaker/

    Without knowing the extent of damages to bottom plates and structure and residual strength of the hulls during loading and transport, I can see only one potential problem:
    If two fuel tanks has been holed at the bottom, whatever they contain of oil/oily water will leak out once she is lifted out of water. They should have been able to remove the majority of the MGO from the top of these tanks, but there MAY be some residue that is difficult to get out without "hot tapping" between each frame. (May have been done)

            Maud is now ready for the trip over the Atlantic Ocean. Now they are waiting for the ice to go in Cambridge bay.
            Picture of the ship, unfortunately only Norwegian text:

              More pictures from the transport of Maud.
              Lene Conradi, who is on several of the pictures, is the mayor of Asker, where Maud was built and will be exhibited

                      Maud meets Fram.

                      Polar
                      vessel Maud
                      is now under towing from
                      Greenland to Norway.
                      Outside Greenland Maud and the new Fram met.

                      Here from the newspaper "Budstikka":

                        That is an awsome sight, Oistein. Oh how I would have loved to have been on that Fram cruise!

                      #28
                      That is truly a somewhat (depends on who sees it) historical picture.... that we most probably will never be able to see again.

                      I hope that Hurtigruten Group sees this too, purchases the image, and makes a nice wall-mounted artwork for their ship!

                          Thank you so much Oistein for keeping us informed about the amazing story of the Maud. After reading this I found that Tom Gullbrandsen had got some ohotos in Bergen. Incredible and impressive sight!
