On our third stop in Haugesund, the town was much quieter than our previous visit in early August, when we took the last available berth. Dock space was not a problem late January, and we had the place mostly to ourselves. We spent a peaceful two nights there, and enjoyed a visit from two Stavanger blog readers.

Haugesund Berth
Our berth in Haugesund with 2 16-amp shorepower outlets available. The water is shut off for the winter, but we carry 415 gallons (1,571 L) so that’s rarely an issue.

Spin Class
One of Spitfire’s pastimes underway is to unravel the toilet paper roll. Apparently he’s not alone. Thanks to blog reader Ronald Hellmann for sending this our way.

Simen & Martin
Blog readers Simen Ytre-Arne (left) and Martin Venaas drove up from Stavanger to say hello. They work at Zelo, a B2B service that helps management reach and engage with employees. Martin found us initially through James’ work blog before coming across mvdirona.com as well. We had a great time talking technology and boating.
