Before whale claw

Before whale claw

I 1925 came slipway to Petter Sørlle. Despite the fact that this made working up the whale easier in bad weather, it was still a dangerous job to get the whales up on deck. Whale Kloa did not come until the 1931/32, before this had two men lowered into the steeps and stick padded wire to the whale's tail so that the whales could be drawn up.
