    Hahaha...., jepp..., but the funny thing is, and now I deliberately brag, I could do this with a pencil and a paper myself.
    But who got that kind of time at hand....., to sit down at a table and use several hours to make a detailed drawing like this...? Not me....

      How do they fish aboard Norweigan boats? I see a large tube on the starboard side of all the boats. I assume that somehow funnels the net to the forward deck or down into a hold?

        As you can see, the funnel is just to help transport the net to the storage at the stern.
        They pull up the net by using the triplex, the three black rods in front of the funnel.

          Drove around for about an hour today and shot some pictures here in Kristiansund.
          Let me start with the small tug "Oskar"...., seen here passing Vestbase heading for Kystvågen Slip on the west side of the island Frei


          And at Kystvågen Slip (Kystvågen Shipyard) it looked like this half an hour later. "Oskar" is visible in the center of the picture


          In Kristiansund the live fish transporter "Ro Chief" is just about to leave

            "Rem Provider" is getting ready to move from Nordmørskaia to the hurtigrutedock at Devoldholmen




            Already at Devoldholmen is "Freitind"


            At Vågekaia were also "Kystbunker" and "Kongsnes". If you spot another vessel in the picture, it's "Oljevern 04"

              In a beautiful light at Storkaia is "Viking Athene" and "Skandi Captain"


              When I stoped near Kystvågen Slip, this workboat came in. "Dormsund" I think it was... (Too busy to finger with my camera to remember the name)

                And to end my presentation for today, here's the tanker "Randgrid" again, still anchored south of Frei...


                ...some 800 meters from the shoreline, but it seems alot closer...

                  Thanks for sharing your afternoon, Sterkoder, (and so promptly too!)
                  The photo with Viking Athene is stunning. I have spent so little time in Kristiansund, but when I was recently looking out the photos taken in Bud in 2003, I came across this of Viking Queen.

                      Nice picture of "Viking Queen" there, 'Seagull'!!!!
                      I see it's probably taken maybe on the 17th May, 8th June or some other day like that...??
                      (Just saw a lot of norwegian flags in the background).

                      The "Viking Queen" you have in your picture looks like this today, and her name is "Ocean King":

                      (They are just trying out their new oil-lences...., or what it's called in english).

                      The ship that have the name "Viking Queen" today looks like this:

                        I use my own quote here now, because the sun could never shine like that (I'm looking at the shadows) in mid May or early June.
                        Let me have a new guess on let's say late June...., around the "birthday" of Kristiansund...?

                        EDIT:
                        SOME ADDITIONAL INFO ON THE TANKER "RANDGRID" FURTHER UP HERE:

                        She's built at Samsung in Korea in 1995 as "Heidrun" and her main role would be to load oil at the oilfield and platform "Heidrun".
                        As you might guess, this could create quite some situations at the radio; "Heidrun calling Heidrun, good morning!"..., so in 1996 the tanker
                        changed name to "Randgrid".
                        She's 265,88 meters long o.a. and 46 meters wide. She got 4 engines giving her 9.443 horsepowers at 514 rpm on the shaft.
                        She can load 140.866 m³ of liquid cargo (4.977.597 ft³).
                        Have never seen info on her max. speed, but I would guess around 12 to 15 knots. (I guess it's dependent on her weight??)

                          Sterkoder, you are amazing! It was June 29th
                          Fascinating to get the update on the name, and a photo of the new Viking Queen too, and I also appreciated the Randgrid data. Does this tanker have submerged turret loading?

                          Comment


                            Well, what can I say...., the birthday of Kristiansund is 29th June, founded in the year 1742

                            "Randgrid" is a shuttle tanker, loading oil from a specially designed buoy away from the main platform.
                            They take in their load through a huge tube in the bow....

                              Thanks for the quick reply. I did not think that they would draw the net over the side. I assumed they drew it up over the stern somehow. Do they draw the net up next to the boat and then use a basket net to bring the catch aboard?

                                When they find fish, they set the net into the sea via the stern, then sail in a huge circle around the fish, close the net in the bottom and it has now catched the fish like in a bag.
                                Then they start to take it in over the side until the netbag gets smaller and smaller, and finally they pump the catch of fish into the boat with a huge pump.
                                To close the net in the bottom is called to "snurpe" in norwegian, and this kind of fishery is then called fishing with a "snurpenot" (not = net).
                                The vessels are called "snurpere".

                                The kind of vessels that take the net in over the stern are called trawlers, as they drag the net after them like a bag when they fish....

                                Hope I wrote so it was understandable...
