    Sig, as a fellow Norwegian, and an ex Salmon fisherman – please get well – we know your job is stressfull and cafiene and nicotine used to go hand in hand, but you can knock the smokes….still have coffee and yell at the crew….hold a pencil in your fingers for a while it will get rid of the urge somewhat…Your family and your crew are more important.

    Får vel , hvile seg og komme tilbake ut å fiske snart !

    Being a survivor of the widow maker . I am glad your alive. :). Get well and get back at it . I got lucky .. Rotor rooter and 1 stent in the main artery to the lower half of my heart . No restrictions but they told me to quit smoking but when I awoke in the hospital I was done already with that :). Good Luck .
