english short version

Welcome to our homepage, where it's all about models of classic wooden boats. On these pages we try to give an impression of our work, different models, model-details and our building-method. Even though you might not understand norvegian, we like to think you can enjoy the whole web-site, mainly because of the many pictures. The pages are updated september 2008, so don't hesitate giving us comments; on models, pictures or language...

We build our models slowly in a traditional way; strakes are glued to wooden frames on a keel, deck laid on deck-beams, mast and boom made of the most authentic materials we can find.
