    Thanks we do try our best to keep her in top condition. It is not easy doing the humanitarian work we do with Vega and trying to maintain a museum quality boat at the same time.

    Spectacular vessel! We’ll be putting this blog in our favorites and a link to your website from ours!

      Thanks Larry & Suzi. We really appreciate your help. It’s hard work and we do not have any big grants or the like. It is just a bunch of “Little People” like Meggi and I who want to make a meaningful difference for the people we assist but do not want our little donation to be used to buy another new LandCruiser or pay some big salary. By carefully targeting what we do and making sure that every single thing we carry is requested by a specific person for a specific use our modest cargo space gets big results. There is no waste at all. Everything we deliver is wanted and needed.

    Shane & Meggi, you guys make the world a better place to live in!!

    Enjoyed the real story of Vega, and the people who own it, use it, and are a blessing to so many.
    I am the grandson of Ola Nerhus; have been aboard the ” Mathilde” in Norheimsan along with my Cousin Olav, the son of my uncle Jens. I have visited the boatyard in Olve and in 1950 saw the building of another Hardanger Yacht. All the best to you. Ray Nerhus

      Thanks Ray Those are the comments that mean a lot to us. It is not easy keeping Vega in top condition and doing our humanitarian work at the same time, but some how we manage. It helps that she is such a solid well build boat to begin with.
