      Ralf and ehp:

      Yepp...., I had a great weekend. You know, it's quite impossible to fly and take pictures at the same time, and on top of it all, just doing that has nothing to do with flying safe...

      But, the aircraft owners sometimes rent their airplane to professional photographers, such as the local newspaper and so on. That way we club pilots can once in a while get an hour of flying for free...

        oh yeah...., almost forgot.... Drove around down at the oilfield service base Vestbase early this morning, and at dock #2 was "Acergy Falcon"...., still....


        And at dock #3 was the Falkland Islands registered "Ernest Shackleton"
        (Had to go back to work, so this bad angle was the best I could do)

          Better view of "Ernest Shackleton" today, as the vessel was moored in the Kristiansund harbour




          And in the main mast is a towerhouse to be used when sailing in heavily icepacked waters.
          It looks like it's not only a viewtower, but that the vessel can be controlled totally from there. But then again, I don't know...


          The seismic vessel "GEO Baltic" moored in front of the Shackleton





          The brand new "Troms Castor"


          Before I drove from the city center, the cargo vessel "Freifjord" came in to dock


          And finally, the new training lifeboat belonging to the new trainingcompany RESQ here in Kristiansund. Cute little thing, isn't it...?

            Nice to see the proper ice breaker Ernest Schakleton!

            That new training lifeboat reminds me of a painted Easter egg...

              Yes..., I tend to agree, but look at those classic wonderful lines and shape of the hull beneath the rubber edge between the hull and "superstructure"...

              But, it is many, many years since a lifeboat was a pretty thing to look at for one who loves nice lines in a hull....

                "Reinefangst" on her way out to catch minke whale.



                "O.Husby" on her way out to the fishing field this afternoon.



                Swedish research vessel "Franklin" also on her way out.



                Russian trawler "Sevryba-1" on her way to Skjelnan Oil facility



                "Signe I" is a historical boat, nearly 100 years old and the region’s oldest fishing boat. Just restored. The skipper guarantees a catch and will gladly prepare and serve the fish on board or you can take your catch home with you. Fishing equipment and life jackets available. Capacity: 12 people.

                  In that last photograph Signe 1 looks almost like she is planing with her bow up high. I am thinking how much fun a days fishing aboard her would be.

                    The huge pipelayer "Solitaire" came in to Kristiansund last night.
                    There will be some crew change and loading of equipment and other stuff for a new long periode at sea.
                    This vessel laid the gaspipe from Ormen Lange down to England....
                    Supply vessel "Highland Rover" looks like a little boat






                    Some superstructure, huh...? And look at the width of that brige...


                    The pipelaying boom. With this boom out the vessel reach 400 meters long


                    "Polarbjørn" leaves Kristiansund. This is the sistership to "Ernest Shacleton", but as you can see, this one has a helideck up front...


                    "Stormfuglen" at its homeport


                    "Bergen Nordic" passing Hestskjær lighthouse

                      Sterkoder the 'Solitaire' is absolutely HUGE! That's the sort of vessel you would stare at for ages if you saw it on the horizon, and whilst staring you would be thinking 'WHAT THE HELL???'
                      And i just love the very tiny looking (in comparison) tug that is with the 'Solitaire'. She looks like a real classic!
                      Your charts, your radar, your eyes and ears - if all 4 agree, you may proceed with caution.

                        Drove around at Vestbase this morning before job again, and as yesterday, "Solitaire" is still resting on the fjord
                        (The little tug is 26 meters long)

                        "Island Challenger" at dock #7


                        "Island Wellserver" at dock #8

                            Tridens must be some kind of research vessel I would presume...

                              Jepp, "Tridens" is a research vessel with dutch flag. Here's one from the same company a few years back, seen docked in Kristiansund: "Tridens I"
