On this voyage Svartfoss will lower Cearban back into the water in the bay at Harstad, a small port in Troms county known as Vågsfjordens perle, the Pearl of the Vågsfjorden.
The plan is for Steve Nygård of Harstad Marina AS to take a work boat out into the polar night to meet Svartfoss as she slows and turns in the bay at Harstad.
In the dark, all goes well.
