Norwegian to English translations [PRO]
Ships, Sailing, Maritime / leisure boat insurance
Norwegian term or phrase: skipssetting
Simply in a list where kaskoforsikring applies:
skade ved skipssetting/opptak eller utsetting.
I will list the other 2 terms separately as well because I have no idea what they mean (trust boats to turn up in my huge job!).
Thanks in advance.

Explanation:
To launch a ship is to "sjøsette" according to Brun's EN-NO Technical dictionary.

Also, remember Helen of Troy? "The face that launched a thousand ships"? :-)
