The 35-metre long and 8-metre wide three-masted motor sailboat Ernst Jaakson (Alar) is the largest old boat to survive in Estonia. The boat was built in 1937–1939 in the Village of Ongu on Hiiumaa Island. Most of its life was spent abroad. Now after 50 years, this giant has been brought back for restoration to the Soru Harbour in Hiiumaa, which is the only wooden boat restoration centre in Estonia.

Waiting for the ferry to transport us to Saaremaa I had the opportunity to view the restoration of this sailing vessel. It is representative of the vessel type and construction of years past. Image my surprise when my cousin told me that a relative had been part of the original construction crew.

'Ernst Jaakson' is not located in Emmaste but on the quay at SÕRU - opposite the ferry port's administration block and village shop. There is nothing of interest other than the visual appearance.
