ALDAN (the wave). Restoring a Faroese fishing boat.
by Eliesar Jakobsen
(Faroe Islands (Skopun))
I am restoring a Faroese fishing boat, which I got from my brother.
The boat name is (ALDAN) in English it means the wave.
The boat dimensions.
L. 29 feet. B. 9 feet. D. 5 feet
The boat was built in 1985
The engine is a Volvo Penta, with 110 HP.
I am going to build a bigger wheel house, so I can take the family on the Regatta trips, that are held here in the Faroe Islands each year.
It is going to take me about one and a half years to restore the boat, because I am not at home all the time, because I am out to sea big time of the year, with the coast guard.
While the original system
worked quite well as a one-off post, it didn’t allow for updating or
posting new photographs etc.
That is why I have
introduced the new Your Pages.
This is new ‘Community’
platform is for 2018.
It is designed to put you
in control of your content, make it easier to for you to tell us about
your Wooden Boat, upload photos etc. and most of all post updates as
and when you wish to.
There is also a forum where
you can ask any questions you may have about Wooden Boats and join in
So, please come on
over and join our community of likeminded Wooden Boaters.
