Boat2Fish 43W – Seigur 1300W

Óli Gísla is the second in a new line of Boat2Fish Seigur boats. 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.

It sits on sturdy iron poles – ready to be lifted up and put to sea. First it must be lifted to get the steering and screw propeller in place.

The rear end is a bit unusual as you can see. These are extras and don’t count in the length of the boat according to Icelandic regulations.

…it got bent just after lifting slightly. The front end of the boat falls down but is not damaged.

The owner Guðjón, the crane-man, Sverrir and Sævar the captain evaluate at the situation – naturally a bit worried.

It is getting late and further operation will have to continue tomorrow when a new and stronger bar is in our hands.

Now the first lifting is successful and we can finish the final tasks.

Sævar and his father put the steering in place.

Taking up the screw propeller from its box. This one is 38-39.

Better fasten tightly!

Now it is airborne again. Better not fall down again. That might damage the propeller and steering and more.

Looks ok. 18 tons measured by the crane.
