    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...

          When you first mentioned the Heidrun platform I was distantly remembering things from when I had more contact with folk involved in offshore, and it has only taken your comments on the Randgrid photo to revive my interest!
          Delving further, it looks like Randgrid has both STL and BLS.
          See list of vessels under heading STL ships in: http://www.apl.no/APLWeb/Templates/L...ge.aspx?id=476).

                    I have never sailed a cabin sized catamaran. I have sailed small 14-18 foot catamarans but never anything large enough that you are really screwed if you capsize. I have always drawn a certain amount of comfort from a monohull knowing that even if I am slow at the wheel, the boat will come back up. Someday I shall have to try a cat. My wife wants one for the extra space and I suppose not having your drink spilled with a gust of wind is a good thing.
