René Olsen was very happy with his new boat. Speaking to the Danish Fishing Journal, Fiskeritidende he said:
“Building new has been a dream for many years. I think it is what all fishermen dream of. One of the most important things has been that we have been able to decide for ourselves how it should be finished. We have been aiming to get some good working conditions on board. As well as some good conditions for the crew with good accommodation. It is a small boat, but then it is also even more important that the conditions are in order.”
Congraulations and good fishing to the Olsen brothers on their new boat from The Fishing Daily.
