This was the very last ship to be built by Uddevalla Varv, yard no. 334, and at first refused to leave the slipway, despite four tugs trying to pull her into the water. It was 10 weeks before she was finally launched, and she was delivered on 27 June 1986.
By that time the shipyard had delivered 221 ships, 5 ferries to link Swedish roads, one pontoon crane and the steelwork parts for three bridges, including √Ąlvsborgsbron, the suspension bridge over which I travel almost evey day and which features in many of my ship and boat photographs.
