      Should I maybe make my own thread "Shipping at Rørvik"....

      I'm really soiling this thread with lots of images from this part of the world today, hope none of you mind.

      This time, I have an image of Svartfoss from Eimship at Rørvik on March 28th 2009:

        All old vessels, or all vessels, have a history and so does the "Gulafjord".

        This picture is getting just a little more interesting when I learned today that "Gulafjord" saved the crew of the german wartime guardboat "Froh" when that boat was bombed by american aircrafts near Aure east of Kristiansund on the 14th November 1944...

          Indeed, ships with history is always wonderful to include in our memory banks.

          Amazing that the vessel is still 'alive' today!

                Eldoey

                There was something on smp.no some years ago when the present Eldoey arrived in Aalesund and, as far as I can recall this refered to the facts as stated above.

                The old Eldoey was, as mentioned, a steel fishing vessel (Snurper) and quite famous locally in Aalesund in her days.

                I remember her well as she was always tied up at "Solbjoergbua" between trips, together with the other Solbjorg vessel, "Utvaer". I used to go onboard to sell newspapers to the crew as a young boy.

                There should be any number of facts and pix of that vessel available at Aalesund Museum, and from the Solbjoerg family.

                  And here's a thruster without a hub.... Well, it's not only a single thruster, but the hole propellersystem on a vessel, turnable through 360°
                  (This is a new invention to prevent totally the huge propeller shaft in the engineroom and aft)

                    "Østhav" (Been laying like this since 2005. They say the engine is finito...)


                    "Hagbart Waage" a former SAR-vessel, now privately owned used for charter and guard operations


                    Nice to see this one afloat again. About one month ago, this one acted as a u-boat for a day or two...


                    Live fish transporter "Ronja Nordic"

                      I really like the lines of Hagbart Waage. She would make a great yacht for me when I win the lottery.

                        Well, take a look at the link below and see how they made "Fredrikstad" to a yacht from a SAR-vessel. She's reg. at British Virgin Islands...

                          Cool... never seen one of those. That was a new take on thrusters.

                            It was invented by an old engineer who's been stumbling over the damn propeller shaft in enginerooms more than once....

                              A little drive around in the city today left me with these images:

                              "Fjordtank" at Vestbase. Although norwegian owner and norwegian name, this one is registered in Panama






                              "Sical Torino" with Singapore as homeport


                              Russian trawler "Karelia II"


                              "Maria" anchored in Freifjordarea, close to my home


                              "Skandi Foula" about to dock near Sterkoder Ship Yard. Already at dock, small cargovessel "Stabben Junior"

                                What cargo does Fjordtank carry? She looks like a tanker, but very small by today's standards.
