It’s just too strong
Interview with Lars Larsen, Reine, February 2015
You have each six hours, then it’s turning, it’s twelve hours pro between high tide and the next high tide and it’s moving half and hour each time that’s why you have different time.
You can’t through it because it’s just too strong. You have boats today, the smaller fisher boats, they have problems to go through the maelström, that’s why they have this harbour refugee in Hella. They can go there, tight it up and wait until the current changes.
