Map of Krampmackens journey in 1981

Map showing Gotland on the right, the island of Öland on the left, and the Swedish mainland on the far left.
The numbers indicate each resting-place.

In the years 1980-1982 the ship was tested and the crew trained. Details were adjusted. The ship was sailed and rowed around Gotland and to Öland and to the Swedish mainland. The southern peninsula of Gotland was avoided by hauling the ship on land on a special wheel construction which was carried inside the boat while on sea. This wheel construction was later used to carry the ship between the rivers in Europe.
