The last nautical miles towards Finnøya are quite special. Here it is shallow water, with sandbanks about 4-5 meters below the keel. The water is clear and we can see the bottom clearly. It's like getting a feeling of soaring above the ground.
The entrance to the guest harbor on Finnøya goes through a relatively narrow canal, where we pass Finnøy Havstuer. The guest harbor itself is well protected from the weather and wind.
After docking at the floating pier, you can walk about 150m to Havstuene to enjoy a better lunch.
Here on Finnøya, a small museum has also been built right down by the guest piers. There you find a 80 year old semi-diesel engine that was produced on this island! We have contact with the people who run this museum, and when we are there, we can get them to come and start the engine for us. It's a wonderful feeling to stand by a mountain of a machine, and hear every punch!
The double-cylinder 100-horsepower boat engine was built at Nils N. Finnøy Motorfabrikk on Finnøya in 1934. The same year it was installed in the liner «Legona». It stood there until the boat was condemned in 1995. The Legona engine was restored and overhauled by Nils O. Finnøy, Nils N. Finnøy and Anders Finnøy and installed in a separate building by the harbor on Finnøya, Finnøy Motor Museum. Guided tour and start-up of the engine by appointment. Finnøy Motorfabrikk laid the foundation for a large part of the mechanical industry in Møre og Romsdal. The founder was Nils N. Finnøy (1865 - 1939). (RB-net)
