Óli Gísla sailed to home harbor – 5.5.2007

A brand new Boat2Fish.net Seigur boat was sailed to its home harbor in
Sandgerði.

Óli Gísla GK-112 is a Boat2Fish 43W – Seigur 1300W. Óli Gísla is 43 feet long
and extra wide and with covered deck. The boat is specially built for laying out
fishing lines with angles. The deck is fully equipped with every machine needed
for baiting the line, laying it out and hauling it back in with the fresh fish.

The boat trip from Reykjavík harbor takes only about 2 hours as the boat is
able to go more than 17 knots.
