DUGA A WRECK. 1968 – 1970, Long 12 meter, 39’ 6’’ Beam 3 meter

1968 I had sailed to England from Sweden in a 14 feet boat. In almost every port I put down my anchor people told me that I would get happier in a bigger boat. People belive that the more you own the happier you are.
In November back in Sweden I thought I do like old Slocum, buy an old wreck and fix her up. (see more detailed text under biographical notes. You have to scroll down a bit).
