Geodaeternes blå både - og geologernes røde. En kapitel i den grønlandske søfartshistorie / Helge Schultz-Lorentzen.

Title: Geodaeternes blå både - og geologernes røde. En kapitel i den grønlandske søfartshistorie / Helge Schultz-Lorentzen.
Translated title: Surveyors' blue boats - and geologists' red. A chapter in Greenland's history of sea travel.
Author(s): Schultz-Lorentzen, Helge.
Date: 1999.
Language: Danish.
In: Grønland. (1999.), Vol. 47(7-8) (1999)
Abstract: Need for accurate charts of coast became clear in 1920s when 3-mile limit impinged on rich potential fisheries. Three boats were specially built - C.C.G. Andrae, W.A. Graah and I.P. Koch - and were supplemented with local craft such as Ûmarisoq. They were very welcome in coastal settlements in summer. Crews were 4-5 in size, with local helpers on shore. From 1932 there was shore base at Holsteinsborg/Sisimiut. Boats were used for setting up shore stations as well as coastal survey. New flagship Kivioq was commissioned in 1933. Re-engined after WW2, the three boats restarted survey work. Last and largest survey boat was Tycho Brahe, and Ole Rømer was added; both these were suited to East Greenland waters. GGU's boats, N.V. Ussing and K.J.V. Steenstrup, started work in 1946 and 1948. In 1956 GGU hired Graah and Koch and painted them red. They were replaced by Andreas Kornerup, Teisten and J.F. Johnstrup.
