    Re: Kong Olav - A legend vessel still around even though on artificial life support.

    I placed an ad on finn.no and now it seems like Kong Olav is finding a new home here in Norway.

    Naturally, I can't give to much information, but she is as close to being saved as she possibly can. I have worked hard, and long, and spent lots of money on this project, and now it seems like we are in for a wonderful treat. Who would ever imagine that little me would be the one to save a ship?

      I cannot imagine anyone more likely to save a ship than great little you, with your ability to communicate, enthuse and inspire.

      It seems a long time ago since I first saw your photographs of the ship (themselves the result of so much effort on your part), and added my name to the campaign to save Kong Olav. There have been many ups and downs and changes of fortune along the way, but you never gave up and have continued to work long and hard towards a happy outcome for this most special of ships.

      I hope that any final hurdles will be surmounted and that you soon have something to celebrate with well-deserved and justifiable pride.

        I could not agree more with that statement! With all of the hard work put in by Jan-Olav over the years, this is looking like the dream will come true at last. Fantastic news, and like Cecilia, i hope any final obstacles can be brushed aside with ease. I cannot wait to hear of further news!

          Just to clarify... I'm not the one buying her, I'm just the LINK between the new owner and the old owner.. and offering my maritime expertice as a Captain.

          More to follow soon.

            Of course dear Captain we didn’t think you’d come into a fortune !!!!
            But don’t you underestimate your role and the importance and achievement of being that vital link, together with your considerable expertise and experience.

                Obviously a long way to go, but just think, if the new owner was to get her seaworthy before her return to this part of the world, well, they may be looking for a Captain to bring her back! Anyone know a Captain that would be willing?

                    Life is more than hectic for me at the moment so I have only just seen this latest, wonderful news. I can hardly believe it Jan-Olav, congratulations in achieving this. Must try and make sense of the newspaper reports you linked to.
                    I would give a lot to see her again, no matter what state she may be in.

                            I was looking at the photo gallery and that's actually a pretty cool ship! Nice design details everywhere.
                            But how about the engine room, it doesn't seem to be in such a great shape?

                              This is great news! I really hope you will be successful in finding her a new owner. Even if you're not the one buying here, you will certainly be the reason she survives!
                              The pictures are both so exciting and so sad.
