In the News

Published by at 3:43 pm under General

The currach I made at Lofotr got some press attention. It was published in the local paper Lofotposten. Here is the scanned article. I’m sorry for the curled paper causing the bad scanning.

    You’re getting famous! Good job, I’m impressed. I don’t know anyone who’s made their own boat (besides me).

    I made one many years ago as a kid from scrap lumber. But never got it near the water, so I’ve no idea how well it would have done. Probably sunk! ~Survival Acres~

    Getting famous is stretching it a little far…

    Sounds like your boat was an interesting one. Maybe you need to move closer to water and test it?

    But why not post this link instead:

    The last picture was good I think, made me laugh a bit as well.
    Good work though!

    Thank you sister. Not sure I think that last photo is all that great, but yeah, definitely funny. I should have washed my hair before that photoshoot…
