How the Ota was built

There is a film available in the web about the construction of the Bornholmian traditional decked fishing boat. 18 months of hard work in the Rønne ship yard, which was recorded by the webcam, is squeezed into ten-minute emotional film. In the screen we see shadows that are in fact shipbuilders often remain nameless. We know that the leader of the LEADER project was Poul Forum Sørensen from Bornholms Træbådelaug and foreman the shipbuilding was Raffael Bartolini from the small firm Bartolini Boats. Watch the film at the Bornholm Boat Building Association website.
