in the captains cabin - planning the next journey
Awesome trip to an old ship with experienced climbers.
The ship is Norwegian but lays on the Swedish side of a fjord between the two countries. It is a historic vessel built in 1949 in UK. It is the only one left of its kind that was a common cargo ship in the years after the war traveling the north European waters. First as a steam powered vessel then later reconverted and fitted with a 9 cylinder diesel motor engine. It has status as listed and many historians hope it will be saved and restored. The ship was decommissioned in 1986.
