Another highlight of the LiV Nordic spa’s thermal suite is the bucket dump, which plunges cold water onto spagoers daring enough to give it a try.
Building Boats and Pools Great British Viking Quest GBVQ Ep7
This week i’ve mainly been in this room. editing and doing little jobs on fiverr which is a website where you can pick up freelance work for $5 and is probably one of the main ways I’ve been raising money for the boat build over the last few months. And and also raising money through my colouring book as well. And a lot of late nights doing little extra jobs on Fiverr.
And now i’m at the point where i can actually buy the boat which is super, super, super exciting. I’ve chosen the boat. It’s not quite the same boat that I was originally looking at. This one is actually a lot better. It’s got some sails on it which gives me more scope for future expeditions.
So even though its a little bit more, that’s the one that I think is going to be a better choice in the long run. And it’s actually just been used to row to Alaska as well, so Which seems quite fitting for Viking expeditions in cold water. I am just having a look at the website.
For angus rowboats. And I’m having a look at my boat. I was originally going to go for the Expedition Rowboat which is a lot smaller which is 18 foot long and a bit cheaper. But I’m now going to go for this one which is the Sailing Rowcruiser. Which is 19 foot long.
And it weighs 99.8 kilogrammes 220 pounds. And I think this is going to give me a lot more scope for the expedition. It’s a little bit more expensive but I think it’s going to be a much better boat and it has just won the Row to Alaska as well. There’s some pictures of it there. And a tutorial. And.
I can show you the plans. so this is the boat here and I was just going to have a rowing boat but I’m actually now going to have one with sails. So that you can row it and sail it which I think will be much better for rowing around Britain. especially since I’m not going for any records or anything like that. And I’ve just been checking with.
The tape measure to see if it would fit in the room because I’m going to be building it in here. So it’s really exciting super, super exciting. And I’ve been really busy trying to raise money to build it. So this one will cost $US299 for the full plan of this one which comes in a kit from Canada $US44 for.
The seat and the rigger kit which you can build yourself. And $US48 for the sculling oar plans because I quite like the idea of building the whole thing myself. Which comes to $US’1 for the plans and then I can fundraise for all the different parts of the build so It’s a little bit more than I was originally the boat I was originally going for.
