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

    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.

                The news is evolving fast, and even though she is still laid up, things MIGHT change eventually:

                      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.

                                This is a very interesting project, and I'm sure we're all exited to follow the outcome.
                                I'm also very impressed over all the energy that you are putting into this - don't give up now!!!
