Yes!!! Thanks very much. However, I only get a glimpse of the picture
of the ship and then the page reverts to the Norway Heritage web site.
It looks like I need to log on to the Museumsnett.no site but I don't
read Norwegian so don't know the procedure to sign up. Any suggestions?

I found a picture of the ship, Claus Heftye (ex USA George F. Patton)
in Bath, Maine on The Solem, Swiggum & Austheim Ship Index.Is this the
ship that you mentioned as The Claus Heftig? If this is the same one,
following information accompanied the picture.
The ship was built by George F. Patten in 1848. In 1864 it was bought
Chr. Castberg, later sold to Fredrik Host (Sandefjord), sold 1873 to
Captain from 1864 to 1872 was J. Chr. Andersen Jr.. Dimensions: Length
X beam 33.6 feet and depth 16.9 feet. Material: Wood, Tonnage: 436
