    Banksk°yta "Storeggen"

    There are already a number of pictures of Banksk°yta "Storeggen" here on CVF, but I thought it would be a good idea to make a separate thread for this magnificent replica of what was once the backbone of the fishing fleet in Sunnmore. I will try to fill up the pages with pictures I have taken of this one over time. It will not be a complete history, but the best I can do.

    To start it off: A film has been made from the construction of this vessel, which will likely be an icon in the fleet of historical vessels here in Aalesund.
