Beggi the Boat builder

Hólmberg Arason, born 1932, had restored 38 boats and built 4 boats from scratch. He thought we was retired when he suddenly obtained a big bag full of boat nails. “Obviously I couldn’t let these perfectly good and unused nails go to waste so I decided to build another boat” says Beggi, as he is always called.

The boat is all hand made in his garage. “It’s pretty much ready, now I’m building a trailer for it so I can take it out. Then a bit of paint job and it should be on the water this summer”.
