    When you say 'exposed coastline' what does that mean? and how many vessels would make a convoy? You have really got me intrigued now .
    Exposed for wind and heavy sea.

    How many boats in a convoy - as many as the captain of the NSSR vessel, according to the weather conditions, believe is safe.

      On one of my favorite photography forums which I often frequent, until such time our own photo section grows and gets more members ( ), I found these pretty neat ship images...

      This is what I mean with incredible maritime images!

          Conductor: welcome on board and congratulations on your very first post. Hopefully, you will find a lot of interesting 'stuff' to read about here and we all can promise you that you will most surely enjoy your time with us!

          Love the composition of your 3rd image, the one taken of the bow from just above her bow moorings! Great angle and depth, in addition to nice and clear colors!

            Thanks for your warm welcome and nice complements Jan-Olav

            Here are some more from last summer

              I also welcome you to our friendly family here on 'CV' conductor, and like Jan-Olav, I also congratulate you on these fantastic images!

              I also love the one looking up the mooring lines to the bow of the Norwegian Jade, truly stunning image. And I also love the shot of 'Mona Lisa's' funnel. I do so hope that this classic has got some sort of successful future ahead of her.

              Anyway, again, Welcome aboard!

                    I know which of those two ships I prefer!

                    Out of interest, in the first photo of your second to last post, do you know which ships stern that is that you can see behind Mona Lisa?

                            Here I am again with a couple of pictures of vessels in the early morning light of Kristiansund this 1st July 2009.

                            "Eidsvaag Polaris"


                            "Camogli Star"


                            Then some from this afternoon when I got off work
                            "Camogli Star" again


                            And to you guys who know more about this than me; isn't this some 'strange' mooring, or what...? Never seen the moore-line making the starboard spring taken from the port side around the bow before....


                            "Havila Favour" about to dock behind "Camogli Star"
