To keep busy during free watches and in the doldrums, you did all sorts of things. You built ship models, did skipping and gymnastics, tried fishing and studied algebra. On Pehr Brahe’s last Atlantic voyage 1903-1904, bosun Arthur Oskarsson begun building a violin. Now it is part of the Åland Maritime Museum’s collection. Here you can hear the dry strings on Arthur Oskarsson’s violin sound for the first time this millennium.
