            I am glad she is tied to the dock. I would hate to be at sea with all that ice. It has to make her top heavy.

                We should maybe rename this thread to "General Ship Images" and/or create an own thread for fishing vessels, and then make a separate thread for those rare and really special shots.

                Anyhow, here is another fishing vessel passing Rørvik, this one named Senoir and sailing soutwards on March 28th 2009:

                    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)
