New Hampshire Boat Found in Norway


This small Boat from New Hampshire is just like a real boat.

In October 2020 a small boat created by students from a New Hampshire middle school was launched out into the sea. Eventually, on Feb 1st it was found in Norway.

After the boat’s 462 day journey out in the ocean, it was found by a Norwegian sixth grader. The boat had landed on the coast of the small island near Dyrnes, Norway.

Portsmouth Herald says, “Found Feb. 1 in Smola, a small island near Dyrnes, Norway.”

The small boat was found in a poor state due to its long journey across the ocean; fortunately, the cargo was still intact.

“When you’re sending it out, you have no idea where it’s going to end up, how it’s going to get there, if it ends up (anywhere) at all,” says executive director of Educational Passages, Cassie Stymiest.

The small boat contained photos, fall leaves, acorns, and state coins that were put in by the students from New Hampshire. These items were brought by the Norwegian student who found the boat, Karel Nuncic, to his school.

AP News says, “The school in Norway plans a call with the Rye Junior High students soon.”
