    ......... and that completes the entire indoor tour of Kong Olav.

    I will now go to show some of the exterior images I was able to do before waving goodbye.

            Just one day away from her 10 year anniversary of the departure from Norway, finally approaching and getting ready to do an inspection:

                Thank you so much for the tour, Jan-Olav!!!!
                Very interesting, and a bit sad to see her condition. But then again, she didn't look too bad...., and she must be transported away from that climate soon if we have any really serious thought about keeping her afloat.
                I, and I guess most of us, have seen ships or vessels in much worse condition being turned around to be diamonds of the seas.
                I think our "Kong Olav" here looks much too good from your pictures to end her life on some beach.
                But honestly; where can money be found to restore "Kong Olav" to the standards of 2009....?

                              Thank you so very much... we need heavy sponsors with a lot of guts and honor: maybe an oil company such as Statoil, or some large International corporation, including suppliers of all kinds of equipment which will be needed.

                              I so dearly wish she could be taken home again... this is not a good end for this vessel.
