THE HISTORY OF THE BOAT-TYPE

We do not know much about the history of the original boat, except the fact that it was built in 1909 by Knut Bengtsson in Hällevik, Blekinge. Bengtsson had a boat building partner called "Bens Ola". The "Rundgatting" is a boat-type that is closely related to other south-swedish and danish boats. Around year 1900 they were common in the middle and west of Blekinge. The size of a "rundgatting" can vary between 13 and 22 feet.
