        I’m in awe and bow my head in deep respect.
        Commander of SDS Hansteen..., wow.
        I guess a big CONGRATULATION is in order!
        Wish I could be there to see, when you took her to sea from Brattøra.
        That is the nearest neighbour to my daughters new appartement in Trondheim, so I will surely be visiting from time to time.
        Will Brattørkaia be Hansteens permanent «home»?

          Congratulations indeed, Jan-Olav. What a wonderful vessel to command, and such a contrast to what you are used to.
          Here's to happy and successful journeys in the HDS Hansteen.

            Hooray!! Enjoy your days on the steamer and i wish you a lot of further commands on this and other historical ships.
            Now you will become a captain-universal: Able to sail powered by oars, wind, steam, petrol, CNG and soon even electricity!!

              Now that's amazing. I'm sure that you will have a lot of nice voyages with that vessel.
              Will you still stay "full time" on the Korsfjord too?

                Dear CVF family, As some of you may have realised, I have made a VERY spontaneous trip to Norway! I didn’'t even have time to tell you in “Seagull away a while”; In any case my rexcuse for being here was just a bit hush hush until Captain posted in his blog last night. I had sort of sussed things out, so am now a kind of “Hansteen groupie” popping up unexpectedly. Captain didn't know until he spotted me when the ship relocated in Trondheim yesterday. YES I have photos! This morning I decided to head for Lada and got a photo with Hansteen and the departing 10 o’clock hurtigrute which some of you may have already seen, but of course will be posted on CVF when I get back to Scotland (please allow delay, as I return for a D hospital day on Tuesday.)

                I am now in Levanger where the Hansteen will arrive in about half an hour. But it’'s not at all obvious where exactly she’ will moor at “Dampskipbrygga” as advertised. I’ am right next to this at a restaurant terrace and there are lots of small boats around. But it does have a view of a more distant quay, farther along than even the ferry dock. So I’ will just wait and see what happens! I haven't had such an exciting time since dashing around Norway when Jan-Olav brought Korsfjord from Poland!

                I’ am in total admiration of Jan-Olav's achievements, and so thrilled to read all your responses to his latest news.

                  Exciting update! I could see that Hansteen had moored beyond the ferry terminal, and walked round. Saw Jan- Olav who invited me onboard and, despite his very long and busy day, showed me around the ship ...including the engine room! What a privilege.

                      UPDATE of this update! ...the following day on Ytterøy was utterly magical! My instincts proved oh so rewarding - I had to plan the various transport possibilities meticulously, but really did not know until the last spontaneous instant what I would decide to do! This is happiness!

                      Naturally I saw the Hansteen back safely to harbour at Brattøra on Sunday, before I had so reluctantly to return to Edinburgh.
                      My thoughts remain in Trondheim today for Jan-Olav's next big endeavour

                        Thank you all for the wonderful feedback om my veteranship command... never thought that so many would come out and notice it, it was an absolutely wonderful experience!

                        I guess you all now got to learn about the second surprise, in due time before my THIRD surprise!

                          PS: I'm still full-time on Korsfjord as well, in addition to the two other ferries when needed...
