the works to convert JEMO to a 2-mast gaff-schooner have started. I have been approached by her owner for old pictures, plans and other information. Can anyone help us out? I know about the picture within the Shetland Museum and about the picture of Olav Opedal in the book of Da Bakka Jr., how can the owner get a copy? I have also asked my german friends for help.
regards from Bremen
that is what I have noted down on her:
