Working on the salship.se website

The salship.se website was started in 1998, when my sons and I needed some kind of activity during a rainy summer week. Since then the website has developed into a huge portal and resource about an important part of 20th century shipping and Swedish corporate history. The site also plays a central part in my interest in the Swedish - American heritage.

New Kungsholm Development Looks Promising

The latest news from Mr Lars Hallgren is that the City of Stockholm is showing great interest in harboring the Kungsholm. The city authorities have appointed a project manager to supervise the project. The goal is to find a berthing site before September! This is an exciting new development of this story.

Kungsholm blir ingen studentbåt

Kryssningsfartyget M/S Kungsholm kommer inte att bli studentbostad i Stockholm. Men staden förhandlar fortfarande med två andra kryssningsfartyg som är aktuella för att bli studentbostäder i höst.

M/S Kungsholm gjorde sin jungfruresa 1966 och användes av
Svenska Amerika Linjen till 1975. Nu kommer M/S Kungsholm,
som var den tredje båten med samma namn och den enda som ännu inte har skrotats, att skrotas.
– Vi försökte hitta en lösning, men kalkylen gick inte ihop, säger entusiasten Lars Hallgren.

I will pray that Stockholm will allow the Kungsholm to not be broken up.
