WOODEN BOATS IN STOCKHOLM

 

Hi Cameron,

Well done for tirelessly working toward spreading the word about wooden boats and my apologies for being unable to bring my little dory along for this year's show.

I thought you might be interested in a few photographs that I took on a recent (July) visit to Stockholm where one of my sons works for a Swedish company. He is a software developer (the Americans call them "software engineers" - sounds a bit fancier!). On a stroll around skeppsholmen Isle, one of the many little islands that make up greater Stockholm I came across a cluster of beautiful wooden boats. Right next to the moorings were a number under construction, piles of timber and all sorts of things that kept me busy for the better part of an hour before I was dragged away by wife and son !

I'm going to forward you several photographs of beautiful Oselvars that I took on that day (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oselvar)

For starters I have attached a few.

Regards

Dave
