    Love the anchor close-up shot as well... very much!
    The anchor belongs to this vessel..., the "Gulafjord". Anchor port side only...

      Those wooden vessels are sadly becoming a rare sight along the coast, so any image of them is a real treat. Now, these days, only plastic and GRP boats ply the waters.

        I agree....I know the maintenance on wood must be an absolute nightmare...but they're just so.......here it comes...you guessed it.....PRETTY.

        How could you not like a Chris Craft runabout from the 1920's, stained and varnished to a mirror finish.....or a sailboat with a gorgeous teak deck???

        Sadly, "utilitarian" trumps "pretty now adays.......shame, really. "Pretty" does so much for one's soul..............

          I lived on a wooden 36' Pacemaker during my summers in high school. It was my job to keep it from sinking. It was almost a full time job for me to take care of all the wood. It rotted about as fast as I could fix it.

            Guess that means you'd fancy anything over a wooden boat...............

                  Yes you are right! If we act correctly we should sometimes stop and think about our words or sentences to express it more easy. That's what we can learn from the English Language, especially from the American English.

                  The longest official German word is:

                  Rindfleischetikettierungsüberwachungsaufgabenübert ragungsgesetz

                  This means a law which sets up, who is responsible to do the supervisory of the marking of beef and cattles, which proove their origin. Also funny is that we have short cuts for most of these words. In this case ist is:

                  RflEttÜAÜG

                  The inofficial word is even longer:

                  Donaudampfschiffahrtselektrizitaetenhauptbetriebsw erkbauunterbeamtengesellschaft

                  which means an Association for subordinate officials of the head office management of the Danube steamboat electrical services, but there is no proof that this society ever existed.

                  But this is heavy OFF-TOPIC, girl!!

                    OH MY GAWD, I GOT RALF OFF TOPIC!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

                    Just to finish up this tiny little veer off topic..it is clear, Ralf, that neither you nor I suffer from Hippopotomonstrosesquippedaliophobia (Hippo-poto-monstro-ses-quip-ped-a-lio-phobia)

                    the fear of long words......

                        Cargo ship "Nordjarl " had to be towed by the "Nordvik" from Sørøysund by Hasvik(Finnmark county) to Tromsø, where they arrived at 18:00 in the afternoon. "Nordjarl " was a little east of Hasvik to anchor to wait for "Nordvik" who took her in tow this morning at 05:30 A.M. I reckon that there is damage to machinery that is the problem onboard "Nordjarl " .





                        Tugboat "Lupus" and R/S "Erik Bye" take over and assisted "Nordjarl" to the pier at Breivika harbour,Tromsø

                          How embarrassing when the old freighter tows the helpless new freighter.
