After searching a while for a boat, i almost gave up on the search. The boat almost came to me, as i told the mooring owner that i wanted to cancel the rent. He then told me to talk to the Teacher in the dock, that also lived in a sailboat.
I went and talked to the teacher, and asked if i had a boat to sell me. Yes, indeed he had. We agreed upon meeting next week, at a cafe in Mo I Rana. A beautiful town in the middle of Norway.
As i signed the contract we moved down to the marina to take a look on the boat. I have never seen a more beautiful construction.
It is a 32″ long Norwegian Produced Sailboat named “Simmer Down”, after the Bob Marley song.
How did you learn to sail?
The most common question i get by people. I did not ask myself that question, i just went out there and tried. I was also lucky to get a coachsurfer from germany to teach me how to rig the boat.
