    I just bought a ship!!!

    Here she is.

    The pricetag was $90000 or 470.000 norwegian krones.

    She's from 1947, 48ft long, 16,5ft wide and weighs in on 70000 pounds.
    The engine is an old one cylinder semidiesel 50hp wichmann (norwegian brand). The engine alone weighs 8-10000 pounds and pushes the ship to 9 knots. I purchased it together with a good friend of mine, and our rxp's will fit nicely on the deck

    Do a search on wichmann diesel on youtube, and you'll hear the sweet sound of 50-60rpm
