    • Great photos that you have added to the thread.

      I have to be honest with you. The Delphin has never been a favorite of mine, but when I saw these images, I actually need to change my mind a bit .... she's not all that bad actually.

      Perhaps her boxy-lines put me off before, but now she's actually got some style to her... I might getting older and have changed my views though.

        Thank you for your comment. The reason I like her is that she is unlike the floating shoeboxes. What I don't like is that she seems to be dipping her bow when going, not so obvious from this picture, perhaps.

        Lofoten in Ytre Steinsundet, Solund, March 25, 2012. This is the narrowest spot in the ordinary lane. Seen from Hestneset.

          That composition feels so well thought out with all those small rocky islands around Lofoten.
          The weather is not much to do about.

          Thanks Tommi for your comment. This place is a favorite place, but not so easily accessible. You have to climb rocks and bogs in half an hour to get there. But when you are there, it's great.

          I've gone through there at 36 kts. but not with that size of ship.

          Impressive! With an MTB, perhaps?

          Yes, with MTBs. KNM Tjeld and KNM Gribb, 22nd. Skv. 1965-66.
          I was Coxswain and at the helm when doing things like that. The Tjeld-class MTBs would drift sideways quite at bit when in planing, so to get through Yttre Steinsundet took planning and knowledge of the way the boats behaved when turning fast at speed like that. FUN!!!

            A lot of varieties here, and now a bridge view of the passing! Nice.

          • I did not comment for a while, but i enjoyed all these pictures so much. I remember myself running from one side to the other to get the best views while we passed this part of the route on Nordnorge southbound in wonderful weather and light conditions in 2011.
            Lofoten '07 ...... Nordnorge '11

            • Same as Ralf for me too. Ytre Steinsundet is always a highlight of the route, and it's a pleasure to see views from different ships there in various light and weather. Also what a stunning location this is to see and photograph the Hurtigruten ships there - the aspect I haven't experienced myself.

                Thank You, Ralf and Cecilia, for your comments. Much appreciated! (Cecilia; if you would like to take a trip to Solund, I could be your guide to Hestneset. Bring good shoes!)

                Do you have the whole fleet pictured at Steinsundet? :-)

                No, unfortunately not the whole fleet. But still I have a few more....
