Notes

5.5 NED 28 history - reconfirmed by Mikkel Thommesen 7th July 2008 - 08.07.2008 by Kaspar Stubenrauch
The boat was indeed NOR 41 and was bought from Sweden. It belonged to various Norwegians, John S Platou and Erik Wiik-Hansen among them. The boat sank at least once, but was rescued and sailed later. I know she was designed by J Håkan Södergren.
Best regards
Mikkel
