Torsdag den 29. oktober 2009 slippsatte Nordnorsk Fartøyvernsenter M/K Brottsjø. Brottsjø var tidligere fiskebåt, og ble bygget for Trygve Nilsen i 1936. Båten eies nå av Nordnorsk Fartøyvernsenter og Båtmuseum. I de kommende år vil Brottsjø gjennomgå total restaurering, og denne vil du kunne følge på her i bloggen. Vi vil prøve å oppdatere bloggen ukentlig med tekst og bilder fra restaureringa. Du vil også kunne lese om teknikker vi bruker, og konstruksjonsløsninger.

Thursday the 29th of October the former fishing boat Brottsjø was put on the slipway at Fartøyvernsenter in Gratangen, Norway. The coming few years she will be totally restored. On this blog I will show on a weekly basis the progress we are making trough text and photographic documentation. Every now and then I delve deeper in to the techniques we use and of the construction methods.

Uke 29/30

Jeg begynte med garneringa. De en tomme og en kvart tykke plankene legges på slik de originale lå.
I started working on the inside, the one and a quarter inch planks or "garnering" are put back in the same places as the original ones
Blandinga av gammelt og nytt begynner å bli synlig.
The mix of the old and new starts to be visible.
Båtbyggeren Bjørn jobber også på Brottsjø fra nå av. Her jobber han med skottet under bakkbjelken. Det gamle var råttent, men fungerer som mal under oppsettinga av nytt.
Boat builder Bjorn is working on Brottsjø also from now on, here he is working wit the new bulkhead. The old one was rotten in the top and bottom so we use the leftovers for reference.
Bakkplankene på styrbordsida er montert. To lange bolter går gjennom bakkplankene og bakkbjelken under. På denne sida var plankene av gran når båten kom til Gratangen sist på åttitallet, mens de samme plankene på babordsida er i furu. Vi er usikre på hvilket materiale som var benyttet originalt siden det trolig er utført en reparasjon, men mest sannsynlig har det nok vært gran som resten av fartøyet.
On starboard side the new "bakkplank" is mounted to. Two long bolt's go throu it and the beam underneath. On this side the plank was made out of spruce when the boat came here in the early nineties but on port side it was made out of pine, it is the original from when it came here but for now it is not clear what they used when they build the boat, most likely spruce because most of the boat is build from that type of wood.
Her vises bakkplankene på begge sidene.
Here you can see the two next to each other.
Kazimierz har begynt å arbeide med motoren. Denne er i god stand, men trenger allikevel litt stell og fjerning av rust. Trygve Nilsen tok godt vare på Brottsjø i de over femti årene han hadde båten, og maskinrommet var plettfritt når Brottsjø kom til Gratangen.
Kazimierz started working on the engine. The engine is in good condition it have to be cleaned good and all the rust has to be removed. Trygve Nilsen took good care of Brottsjø, he had it for more than 50 years and it's save to say that there was no rust on or around the engine or any other part in the engine room.
Joost har tatt opp arbeidet på huden igjen, de siste plankene.
Joost started working on the planks again, the last ones.

Retningslinjer for prosjektet.


Fartøyets drift og vedlikehold skal ha som overordnet mål å sikre det som et varig kulturminne, slik at den kulturhistoriske verdien ikke blir forringet eller går tapt. The vessel usage and maintenance should have the primary objective of ensuring it's Cultural Heritage. So that the cultural-historical value is not degraded and kept preserved .

Restaurering skal skje etter prinsipper som klart ivaretar de opprinnelige kvaliteter ved fartøyet ut fra en nærmere dokumentert epoke i dets historie.

The basis for all restoration work on boats with protected status should be a detailed restoration plan for the boat build on historical research that's well documented.

Arbeidet skal være virkelighetstro, Det betyr at fartøyet i det ytre kommer til å fremstå som nettopp dette fartøyet eller denne fartøytypen har sett ut i en nærmere definert periode i dets historie. Motor- og andre tekniske installasjoner skal tilpasses slik at de forstyrrer fartøyets kulturhistoriske fortellerverdi minst mulig. -The work will be true to its origin, This means that the vessel will appear as just that vessel or the vessel type that is defined in a specific period in its history. Motor and other technical installations should only be changed so that they interfere in the least possible way with the vessel's historical origins.

Arbeidet skal være materialetro. Dette betyr at alt istandsettingsarbeid blir utført som kopi av de eksisterende løsninger, og det skal brukes materialer av samme type eller tilsvarende: Eik ikal erstattes av eik, bek og drev med bek og drev, messing skruer med "messing skruer, firkantmutter med firkantmutter osv. -The work will be true to its material. This means that all restoration work is a copy of the existing solutions, and to use materials of the same type or equivalent: Oak is replaced by oak, brass screws with brass screws etc.

Arbeidet skal være håndverkstro. Dette betyr at alle detaljer i skrog, innredning og rigg i størst mulig grad er utført med tidstypisk form, bearbeidelse og sluttbehandling. Utskiftede deler skal være eksakte kopier av de gamle og med de samme dimensjonene. -The work will be true to its craftsmanship. This means that all the details in the hull, interior and rig are made as far as possible to the specifications of the time . Replaced parts shall be exact copies of the old and with the same dimensions.

Restaurerte fartøy skal holdes forsvarlig ved like. Arbeidet skal utføres med tradisjonelle, håndverksmessige metoder og i størst mulig utstrekning med historisk korrekte matetrialer. Arbeidsteknikken skal harmonere med den perioden fartøyet representerer. Dette betyr at en hånd høvlet overflate ikke skal vedlikeholdes med elverktøy. Linoljemaling skal ikke overmales med plastmaling. Naturlige råvarer skall ikke byttes ut med kjemiske osv. -The restored vessel shall be reasonably the same. The work will be done with traditional, woodworking methods and in the greatest possible extent with historically accurate materials. Work technique's should harmonize with the period the vessel represents. This means that an originally hand-planed surface shall not be planed with power tools. Natural oil paint should not be painted over with chemical paint etc.

Det skal utarbeides en verne- og vedlikeholdsplan for fartøyet, der intensjoner og krav i -disse retningslinjer er nedfelt. Innholdet i planen skal godkjennes av Riksantikvaren eller et fartøyvernsenter. -There shall be established a protection and maintenance plan for the vessel, with the intentions and requirements specified in these plans. The contents of the plan shall be approved by the "Riksantikvaren " or a "fartøyvernsenter".

The General Conference of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization meeting in Paris from 17 October to 21 November 1972, at its seventeenth session, Noting that the cultural heritage and the natural heritage are increasingly threatened with destruction not only by the traditional causes of decay, but also by changing social and economic conditions which aggravate the situation with even more formidable phenomena of damage or destruction, Considering that deterioration or disappearance of any item of the cultural or natural heritage constitutes a harmful impoverishment of the heritage of all the nations of the world, Considering that protection of this heritage at the national level often remains incomplete because of the scale of the resources which it requires and of the insufficient economic, scientific, and technological resources of the country where the property to be protected is situated, Recalling that the Constitution of the Organization provides that it will maintain, increase, and diffuse knowledge by assuring the conservation and protection of the world's heritage, and recommending to the nations concerned the necessary international conventions, Considering that the existing international conventions, recommendations and resolutions concerning cultural and natural property demonstrate the importance, for all the peoples of the world, of safeguarding this unique and irreplaceable property, to whatever people it may belong, Considering that parts of the cultural or natural heritage are of outstanding interest and therefore need to be preserved as part of the world heritage of mankind as a whole, Considering that, in view of the magnitude and gravity of the new dangers threatening them, it is incumbent on the international community as a whole to participate in the protection of the cultural and natural heritage of outstanding universal value, by the granting of collective assistance which, although not taking the place of action by the State concerned, will serve as an efficient complement thereto, Considering that it is essential for this purpose to adopt new provisions in the form of a convention establishing an effective system of collective protection of the cultural and natural heritage of outstanding universal value, organized on a permanent basis and in accordance with modern scientific methods,
