The Journey of “FF Harry” Begins

Fredrikstad, Norway 03. May 2018
Thanks for joining us!

FF Harry is a wooden boat of ’81 with an aluminium top a Norwegian Sabb 10Hp diesel engine looking for new adventures. And boy did he get more than he barged for.

Now. The ship has changed. We were in need of more indoor space. After all this will be our home for the next months. The price 10.000 NOK (or about 1200 USD or 0.1312 BTC as of May 1th.)

This is “Harry” the way he looked the day we picked him up in April 2018.

Like I said, we needed some more space and extra equipment. Another 800 USD was spent on upgrades even though we got most of the big stuff for free on finn.no. Which is also where we got the boat..

“FF” is a type of ship in the Norwegian ship registry. Meaning¬†Forskningsfart√ły or Research Wessel in English.

The plan is to sail into the lakes and canals of Sweden!
