    Ship Spotters and Maritime Image Thread

    In this sticky thread I'm inviting all of you that works, lives or travels by or at sea to share your nautical themed pictures.

    The pictures can be from life on board, special moments or events, beautiful sunsets or just simply daily life.

    Any pictures that stands out from your collection and can be related to the oceans (or sea) in one way or another.

    Hoping to see many interesting images in the future.

    Thank you for posting!

    PS: This is intended for single images, if you have a collection of images from the same event or similar event, please feel free to create your own thread to share them and their story.
    With best regards from Jan-Olav Storli

    Don't know for sure if this is ment to be the old Endless thread (Increadible) Maritime Photographs, so therefore I don't make a link at this stage, but anyway...., here's some pictures of the small tanker "Sydstraum" that I worked on this past night. She came with 400.000 ltr of Glycol (MEG) to us at Swire and I was called out on duty to dock the boat and stand guard of the pump and hose.
    (Sorry for not having time to adjust my old camera)

      General cargo vessel "Stabben Junior" at Kristiansund Mekaniske this saturday afternoon


      And at the same yard, the old steamtrawler "Borgenes" sat ashore to inspect damages to the hull and estimate some costs.
      (It said "No trespassing" on a sign down to the yard, but who can take such signs into concideration...? Not me...! (Wouldn't have been too many pictures taken then.....).


      Silage vessel "Aquafisk Senior" at Sterkoder Ship Yard (Sterkoder is merely a realestate company these days...., I know...., but to ME it's still Sterkoder Ship Yard)

                Heeeey...., a "Kristiansunder".....
                M/Tr. "Havbris" was delivered from Sterkoder Ship Yard here in Kristiansund as M/Tr. "Rybak" yardnr. 127 in August 1991. It was one of the 20 "Russian-trawlers" from this yard.
                Oh..., I remember her being just a small plate of steel...., hahahaha....

                    I see they don't like seagulls in Aalesund either.... (hence the black net).
                    It would've been much better if someone could restore such brygger (harbour warehouses) back to the jewels they are, and someone could make use of them....
                    Here in kristiansund, the politicians/owners cover the walls in hønsenetting (steel fence)

                    Crazy gang!!!!

                    Nice boat though....

                        Yes, it is a real shame to let the harbour history decaying and tumble down... But there are some owners that are doing a great job to restore these old buildings.
                        And there are still many places in Ålesund for the seagulls to rest.

                              Well, I for one don't know a hole lot about the "Shetland-bus" , Leif Larsen and their traffic....., but I know that the K.N.M. HITRA (my image below) is the only survivor of the famous Shetland-buses of the world war 2.
                              Therefore ELDØY can not be a "true" and original Shetland-bus, but the shape of the hull is very alike...., isn't it...?

                              I would very much like to know more about the ELDØY.
