Fantastic, love the chat with the fisherman and his wife joke! A true genius of man maths!Hi again!
We have posted some updates since last time I posted, with subtitles in English. The latest one features the crossing of one of the most feared and harsh open water crossings along the Norwegian coast: Stad. It's in the middle of Norway, it's basically a large landmass peaking out into the ocean in a way that means you very often get dangerous wave patterns there. It's also a fairly long crossing. It's very tempting to go closer to the shore as that means a shorter distance to travel. But the waves are often higher, the reflected waves from the shore often makes the seas very chaotic closer to the shore. Stad has a couple fantastic, but cold, beaches that are know for very nice surf waves. The rest of the coastline is just steep rocks. There have been quite a few famous ship wreaks here.
We had to wait a few days before Stad before we could cross it. And even then we ended up facing quite high seas for such a small boat. Even in the large camera boat I struggeled quite a bit to hold on and be able to film at the same time. Luckily my father was able to come with me for this stretch. Without him it would have been very difficult til both navigate and steer the boat, and film at the same time.
Currently, a ship tunnel is being planned, and they will start building it soon. It will enable fairly large ships to avoid having to pass the open waters outside Stad.
