Boats on Mondays - September 10 - 2007

This Monday I will invite you to visit the Strongest Ship in the World. Besides, no other ships have advanced further North nor South than "Fram". You can see it in Oslo. And read more about it here and see more photos. You will have an insight in the exploring of both Antartica and the Artics. Above is a model of Fram, outside the Museum, where you can see the original Fram, in full seize - you can even walk aboard and see all the equipment and how they lived. Fram's construction was genious in the sense it could not be screwed down by the polar ice, instead lifted above - hence they could handle the ice and winters during the ships many expeditions - which other vessels was not designed for.

More boats: RennyBA and Mar and Mrs Lifecruiser
