March 22 - Building the ship
How is it possible to build a full-sized replica of the East Indiaman Götheborg from 1738 and sail it to China? How can you adapt to the safety demands that ships classified for ocean voyages have today without showing it on the outside of the ship? Mats Berggren, Ship Inspector, and Björn Florin, Production Manager, will tell you.
