    GUNNERUS is such a cute vessel: stationed in Trondheim, Norway, and operating as a science vessel for the local University. They are manned with mostly volunteer, part-time crew-members.

    I have photographed this vessel more times than I dare admit, but with so little ship movements in this fjord, she becomes a natural draw for me. After all, she is a very nice looking vessel.

        Great pictures (as always). As for the GUNNERUS, she got her name from Johan Ernst Gunnerus who lived in the 1700s and was one of the founders of Det Kongelige Norske Videnskabers Selskab and he was also a bishop in Trondheim ;-)

      One more image of the GUNNERUS near Trondheim:

          Gunnerus is such a satisfying-looking vessel that really appeals to me. Indeed after seeing images of her along with Kong Harald in your blog, I was motivated to look up more about her. Here is an informative link about the vessel (and also her predecessor).
          I also highly recommend a click or two to the topics 'Research areas' and 'Research activities' of NTNU - very impressive.

            The link you are mentioning may have fallen out, but still, I agree, Gunnerus is a very nice looking vessel.

            I have never been on board her, but I have walked dockside looking at her and she would be perfect converted to private purposes at end of service.

            With a moveable 123 meter long tripod (read: ship-pod), I was able to catch these images of a local freighter called FOSENBULK:

              Interesting pictures. You could have doubts if her captain can see you without radar and GPS. We can't spot him on these pictures.

            WAOW - the old girl Polargirl from 1962 is still in operation!

            Warm memories takes me back to late 80's when I served on board as a deckhand during FishGuard patrols off Sørøya.

              Love the single letter "E" midships.... as if they didn't have time to paint the rest, or the rest of the letters "fell off"...

                  Indeed when this happens it does feel as if a turning point in the year is approaching! I really like this photo a lot. Perhaps it is because the horizontal lines of the vessel on the left of the image kind of match the buildings behind, and farther to the right her curve is matched by a curved shape in the buildings higher up. All the colours and tones are so complementary too. It all adds up to such an excellent 'portrait' of Polarsyssel.

                    Interesting ship designs at "Norvarg" and "OV Bokfjord". Unusual proportions.

                      A BIG THANK YOU to Bengt for all these updates.... especially loved the atmosphere of the laid-up LANCE photo (4447).... something stopped me dead in the tracks when I saw that image. I just can't put my finger on it, other than it's a great moment in time photo.

                      HELGA.... sorry for being so frank, but that name made me giggle thinking of a rather "large" German lady serving beers, sausages and sauerkraut.

                        I do understand that very well, it's the same problem I'm facing here in Trondheim. It's always the same ships over and over again, and I can of fall into a photo-draught.

                        Even the cruise ships in Trondheim aren't interesting because it's the same ships over and over again.... such as Aida this and Aida that....
