A week ago, Marius Olsen who is on the final stretch of his GIS build asked if I was free for coffee and abut of show and tell since he was passing Gothenburg on his way to France. I wasn't, but asked if we could meet up at our summer house on his way home. Their plane was to arrive Gothenburg in the morning so that seemed possible. Therefor, Rackham the red was hitched to the car when we departed for Orust on Friday afternoon.
Sunday Marius and his family turned up at lunch time. We had the sail up, discussed details on the rigging, the workings of the GiS rudder and its relative merits, etc. and then had lunch with more boat talk. It was very fun to meet in person. Plans were made for a Northern Europe meet up. Next summer there might be three GISes in Norway, so if we can trick someone from the continent to join we can brake the record for most Goat Island Skiffs at the same place (current record is four).
