A short documentary on the North-Norwegian wooden boat builder Ulf Mikalsen from Kjerringøy.
Interesting and enticing short work on what seems like a rather eclectic and particular individual.
Being a boat builder of traditional wooden boats he is a part of the slowly waning part of the population that keeps these very very old Norwegian traditions alive.
The name Kjerringøy
