“The pump of the ship was carved from aspen, and it has been preserved almost entirely. The structures of the ship could serve as a model for such ships as the Jakobstads Wapen, Museum Director Pekka Toivonen says.” (K.R.: newspaper Pietarsaaren Sanomat, 19 July 1989)


“Based on the finds, we can already say that the Argo has been about the size of the Jakobstads Wapen, which is currently being built in Pietarsaari. There are well-preserved parts such as a wooden pump that has been preserved almost entirely, including its piston and all.” (Salmi: newspaper Keskipohjanmaa, 18 July 1989)
