Colin Archer Stavanger Whereabouts?

I heard the rescue boat Stavanger was in a museum and I heard the boat was sitting in the water at the dock at the museum but can't confirm either.
Does anyone have any information?

Also, if there are any interior pictures of the boat it would be a real treat.


Thanks

Ps, Here is the youtube link for the video of Stavanger for those who never saw her in action.

Great video even if I could not understand the narration. Looks like it was one tough boat manned by tough crews. I loved that there was not one single piece of high fashion weather gear on any of the crew. Love the simple bilge pump too!

Wonderful boat. That clip is from a documentary that was made for Norwegian broadcasting documenting the boat's last trip along the coast. I think you can find back the documentary in its entirety at NRK.no. If you understand Norwegian, you really should!

RS Stavanger has been put on land to be a part of the permanent collection of the Norwegian Maritime Museum, along with Kon Tiki and Fram and other boats, in Oslo:

Still, she has sister ships that still are sailing.


Cheers,

Research WoodenBoat mag. They did a feature article on her some time back.

Pulled my copy December 2009.
