    "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.

                Comment


                  "Fjordtank" is one of the many smaller tankers sailing up and down the coast to deliver all kinds of fluents.
                  It can be anti-freeze fluid, any kind of acid, diesel, petrol and what not in that category.
                  Right now she's listed with "Hazard or Pollutant Catergory C Cargo"...., what ever that might be.
                  I belive that is the name of the category cargo she's allowed to carry...

                  These small ships are like small cargotrucks: We have a pipe or enormous/huge tankers coming with oil or other fluents to a central place in the country. Then the armada of smaller tankers take over and deliver the ordered amount of a type fluid to customers all around the country...

                  Hope the answer was to your satisfaction

                  EDIT: B Y T H E W A Y......., since we (or rather I) talk about it, here's another example of a smaller tanker bringing fuel to the tankstation of Shell Oil. Small tankers are needed, due to the fact that huge tankers can't go everywhere and there are certainly no economics in digging down pipelines to every place that need fluents of some sort every once in a while....

                    A dear friend of mine recently bought this wonderful wooden boat in Southern Norway recently, and on his way home to Northern Norway, they naturally passed by Rørvik, giving me an opportunity to both catch up and see this wonderfully restored wooden boat from 1965.

                    Powered by a Caterpillar and about 50 feet long. He will use it in connection with his wife's recently purchased cafeteria on Husøy (Senja) for tourism mainly.

                      Is this the new vessel of Rolf Tøllefsen...?
                      Is he the father of the little boy Sander from the tv-series "Da damene dro"..?

                      Looks like a very vell kept vessel.

                        Yeapp. RBT new boat. The vessel was completely gutted and rebuilt by previous owner and is built in ... wood (naturally) .. I think that is 'oak' in English. The original vessel was built in 1965 and is now in a stunning condition and ready for a new tourist career out of Husøy, Senja.
