Pandora moored at Klippan, Gothenburg

Photographed on 5 June 2008.
Built in 1929 in Holland by Smidd, and riveted in clinker-built iron. Larch mainmast and Oregon pine mizzen. 56 x 16 x 6.5 feet. 70 tons displacement.
She was originally a fishing boat, a Nordsee Botter, intended for fishing on the high seas. She was originally fitted with a surface-ignition engine and a sail, but was converted in the 1950s to the rig this size of boat had around 1900. The superstructure has also been added to over the years.
