88-åringen som snek seg ut på havet og forsvant

Kaptein Anders Jenius Smedsvik bygde seilbåten selv. Alene, med egne hender. Da han slo inn den siste spikeren i skroget hadde det tatt ham over fem år å bli ferdig. Tegningene var også hans egne, laget etter hukommelsen. Noen sier modellen var en amerikansk redningsskøyte, andre hevder Smedsvik fortalte det var en kopi av en fiskebåt han en gang hadde [...]
