As you know Nordlys has been on the slipway in France for a few weeks now.
Repairs on Nordlys
During the last weeks Nordlys has been repaired. Her stern was badly damaged and the poophouse (little building for the toilet at the aft of the ship) had to get major renovation. As you can see at the pictures below a lot has been repaired and refitted and Nordlys is starting to get back in shape again. Thanks to local carpenters , steelworkers, electricians and off course her own loyal crew. The same crew who has been working on her last refit in Den Helder are working hard to make her sea worthy again. A big thank you to them!
Nordlys back into the water
An exiting moment. Nordlys goes back into the water again. She will stay a little while on the trailer to be sure she is afloat and not leaking. After that she will be moved to a quay to get some more repairs done above the waterline.
The tug assisting Nordlys while in the water
After a short stay on the trailer of the slipway Nordlys has been “sailing” a little bit together with a tug. The tug helped Nordlys to her current spot in the harbour of Douarnenez, France.

Tres Hombres sailing from Den Helder to Douarnenez.
My voyage on the great ship “Tres Hombres” from Den Helder (NL) to Douarnenez (FR).
Tres Hombres is a fair transport vessel which carries cargo – without an engine on board. Emission free transport… awsome. When you know that 90% of all our goods are transported over the ocean.
