There has never been made any special strengthening of Kurt's boat to coop with harsh weather conditions during the three and a half trips around the world. Kurt built a hard top to have an even better protected cockpit.
Kurt donated the boat to the Råå Museum. - I could have sold the boat for some SEK 300 000 but I could not stand the idea of not knowing where the boat was and how she was doing. I prefer scarifying the money and have peace in my mind, Kurt said.
Kurt lived between 1921 and 2006. In 1996 Kurt went ashore and gave up sailing. The reason was his health condition. He bought himself a small garden cottage at the water side. Do not even think for a moment that Kurt was interested in cultivating vegetables. Kurt wanted to sit and watch the yachts sailing by.
