    Pakarang: Is the drydock for With Junior carved in stone? All that I have seen in the USA are made from concrete but that one looks like they just blasted it from rock. And there are those cool hydraulic clamps again.

      Yes, this dry dock is carved into the mountain. It is a fairly new dry dock and opened only a few years back (I think). It is located in a tiny place called Ottersoy (only about a 1000 inhabitants, if that..) not far from Rorvik.

      They do not build ships there, but they specialize in ship repairs and other emergency works. There are not too many dry docks in this area, so if there is a ship in trouble near here, they can accommodate pretty decent sizes.

          I dedicate this image to Dane: the tug boat Boa Hårek approaching Rørvik from the south late in the evening of April 13th 2009:

                Tugboats. Gotta have them.

                I really like the lines of Scan Master. Perhapse because she is not a modern box. Relativley small by todays standards and the angled sides to the hull near the stern coupled with the sloping back edge of the funnel giver her a very pleasing look.

                Thanks for the photos.

                  The offshore support/construction and survey vessel "Edda Fauna" taking on chemicals at dock #6 at Vestbase tonight


                  The small tanker "Serra Theresa" have been moving up and down along dock #6 for the entire evening. Guess she's waiting for that space of "Edda Fauna", but she will not go out before at least 02:00 AM.

                    Now that's my kind of vessel! She really looks like she means business! And i love the massive knuckle boom - just look at the one on the foredeck in comparison!
                    Your charts, your radar, your eyes and ears - if all 4 agree, you may proceed with caution.

                      Sterkoder, those night photos are simply stunning. Brilliant photography, and I share SteveB’s enthusiasm for Edda Fauna too!

                        Thank you!!!

                        And as for the moving around of "Serra Theresa"...:
                        She could not get her anchor up, and finaly had to cut the chain...

                          I just wondered for a few seconds whether I should post all my pictures from todays "hunt" here, or spread them around in different threads (Navy vessels around the world and Offshore and supply vessels).
                          Ended up with posting them here, so here we go:

                          Coast Guard (Kystvakt...., in norwegian) vessel W333 KV "Njord".
                          This vessel belongs to what we call "inner" Coast Guard concerning with close to shore waters and fjords. (The "outer" Coast Guard obviously has larger ships)




                          One for you detailfreaks out there ()


                          KV "Njord" with the arriving "Viking Athene" in the background

                            "Viking Athene" turning around in the harbour to dock starbord side in at Devoldholmen


                            The offshore gigant "Skandi Seven" docked at Storkaia


                            A closer look inside the "ROV Compartement". The little yellow thing there being the ROV (Remotely Operated Vehicle). Normal operating depths are 1.000 to 3.500 meters, but they are a few times known to have been operated between 7.000 and 8.000 meters


                            "Orion Explorer" (former "Eidsvaag orion" docked at Nordmørskaia)

                              The evening shot of Edda Fauna further up is simply fantastic! Nice work!

                                Thank you, thank you!!
                                You know, I used a tri-pod for a change and shot in "auto", "night" and "manuall".

                                By the way, when talking of tri-pod; did you ever get pictures of the cargo vessel TRI TRANS just passing Nærøybrua...?
                                Sent you an sms earlier. I think TRI TRANS is a beautiful vessel with good classic lines for a coastal cargo vessel. (Needless to say, I don't like former european "flat" river boats, as it seems all coastal cargo vessels have become in Norway now).
