On the first test drives last year I learned that a midships cleat makes docking much easier. That's why I've retrofitted one now.

Out of Water

The TRÄHOLM is craned out of water for the wintertime.

The underwater hull has not yet had an anti-fouling coating and has thus developed into a maritime habitat
