Flanged 6 whale. In the night it blew up a bit again, but it is certain none of it. Last day there was a new record in the cook-out with 1830 fat. It's probably mostly boiled some time here aboard both last year and this year. In addition, it is boiled just 12 whale, so there has not been any "sticks".
