the May 1 this year every person on board a
boat more than 8 meters long have to wear a life jacket,
when the boat is en route. The decision does not apply
to cases when boats are not en route. We recommend
floating costumes, preferably full survival suits.
life vests are at our guests' disposal. We also
have a small number of self-inflatable life vests N150
for rent. They
cost € 10 per week. The normal vests are
from the 2015 season we can offer sea fishing tours with
our new walk-around boat, brand “Sargo 28
we can look back on a marvellous summer with abundant
fish catches through the entire season.
Within the current autumn there will be taken
steps to dredge the approaching fairway to the floating
pier. The mole will also be fortified.
another season is ended. The last guests who
arrived were quite lucky in regard both to
the weather and to the haul. Again
coalfishes (pollacks) weighing 6-10 kg were caught. For
the rest it has been a rather varying fishing
through the season. The spring months were fairly
cold, which led to scanty growth of plankton
and nourishment for the fish. In spite of this
drawback there were caught large halibuts (45
kg), lings and torsks. Most of the boats are now taken
in and are ready for maintenance. The 25 HP engines have
proved to be structurally undependable. The remainder of
them will therefore be renewed by 30HP engines before
the next season.
recently got a limited number of automatic inflated life
jackets for rent. The price will be € 10,- / week. The
standard one will be free to use as usually.

the boat owners, can prevent accidents by ensuring
that the boats are safe and in good condition. Further
on, we must improve the information presented to the
tourists considering danger and emergency procedures,
as well as making sure that weather forecasts are

drivers are aware of their responsibilities and duties.
born after 1 January 1980 must have a valid boat
driving license when renting boats with engines larger
than 25 HP. This will be controlled before handing out
control and ensure that the law is obeyed.
The aim is to reduce the risk of serious injuries and
deaths. In 2012, DSB has already had several controls
and found shortages.
Ministry of Justice and Public Security has ordered
DSB to make new regulations leading to general safety
demands for the boat owners. Once these regulations
are completed, additional changes might occur.
work is now going on in full swing.
Mole and road were damaged by two heavy storms (hurricanes)
last autumn and winter.
After a nice and sunny vacation in Thailand I’m keeping the home fires burning again.
Now I’m about to clear the boats for the coming

A new arrangement this year is a demand payment of toll at the ferries
crossing the Trondheimsfjord. The reason is a resolution
which charges vehicle drivers
with the greater part of the financing of an
enterprise, which is a development of the main road
system in Fosen.

notified that there will be frequent inspections –
both on sea and within each harbour.
Some of our guests have taken part in a research project where you were
asked to fill in a catch form in certain weeks
throughout the past two years. In the beginning of
February, we visited the Institute of Marine Research
in Bergen where the result of this survey was
presented. Please contact the reception if you would
like to see the results. The Institute’s home site
We also cooperate with the Northern Research Institute (NORUT) in Tromsø.
As a part of their project, NORUT is collecting data
on fishing among tourists. The institute will be very
grateful for all the answers it can receive. You will
find the form to fill in here:
