Another update on the rapidly progressing restoration of the 1925 Johan Anker 6-Metre Oslo, with photos (separate Gallery). Still on track for an early Summer re-launch. News - OSLO 6-Metre N17

Further update on the restoration of our 1925 Johan Anker 6-Metre, the Oslo, with photos (separate April Gallery). Up in Ashland this week to pitch in, still on track for an early Summer re-launch but the devil is in the details.... News - OSLO 6-Metre N17

Some delays in the re-launch, perhaps not unexpected in the restoration of my grandfather's 1925 Johan Anker 6-Metre, the Oslo. Up in Ashland last week to help work through deck layout, now hoping for late summer launch. More details at News - OSLO 6-Metre N17

A guy at my marina has an aluminum 32' sloop from the late 60's claims it was owned originally by Norwegian Royalty. I think there must be a broker somewhere named 'Norwegian Royalty'

Re: Classic 6-Metre Restoration

At long last the 'Oslo' has been relaunched, and we are preparing her for the European 6-Metre Championships next week in Nynashamn, Sweden. It was a largely wonderful 2-year process, and we are pleased to again have my grandfather's boat back in the family. Many thanks to Josh Swan and JWSwan Boatworks for the hull restoration, Vinette Boatyard and members of Escanaba Yacht Club for help with additional finishing work in May (see http://www.oslo6mr.com/news.htm), Stockholms Batsnickeri for rudder, rigging, and finishing work over the last week, and suppliers Masttech, North Sails, Mauri Pro Sailing, Vrolijk Watersport Scheveningen, and Classic Marine UK.
