"Colin Archer took the double-ended Norwegian fishing boats - slowly developed over centuries - and, without destroying their greatbeauty and utility, improved their design for seakeeping. He designed a cl ass of splendid sailing rescue boats for the coast of Norway, boats that could survive in extreme storm conditions and work the coast to save the lives of the fishermen.
