    Typical spring weather here north, some snow in the air.

    Really charming vessel, this one. I have seen her and her sister which I think might have been called Stockholm(?).

    When it comes to the weather - I'm so sick and tired of the snow, and this weekend, I think we might get our very last sniff of sub-zero temperatures during night time. After that, I doubt snow will return here.

      After checking / replacing sailing marks during the week, they take a little off until monday morning.

      Kystverket is a nice place to work, I've heard from many. I once or twice applied for jobs there, but never got accepted. They have a decent salary and weekends off (in port somewhere).

      And as if that it not enough, they have a very meaningful and important job to do.

      BTW, is there a pick-up truck up on the bow, or are my eyes playing me a trick?

        Good to know - just had my medical certificate updated for the next two years.

        I don't know this ship too well, but from your image, I think she has some kind of "ferry-bow" or ramp in the bow.

                "Sjøveien" (PA) (meaning the Seaway) was built in Bergen in 1964 for the Norwegian Government and she worked for them in various capacities. From 1979 until 1995 she was used as a training ship for mariners. Since 1995 she has been in private ownership and during the many years since, worked for the Norwegian coast guard. After being a hotel ship for the past few years, she has now been refurbished into a classic and exclusive passenger ship and started her career in Svalbard the summer of 2017.

                BTW:After a few hours at the dock in Tromsø this afternoon they set the course for Longyearbyen.

                Inbound to Tromsø this afternoon.

                This is absolutely WONDERFUL - I have also had my fair share of hours doing navigation training on board SJØVEIEN, that was back in the second half of the 80's off course. Back then, she was grey I believe.

                Good to see her still sailing strong, and that she appears to be so well kept. Actually she looks a lot bigger than in my memory.

                  Trondheim today?

                  Oh, welcome to my city - I hope your stay is a pleasant one. I hope those ships sink some day (not really off course), they are replacing me with a computer soon.

                    hahahahaha.... Back when I applied for a job there, I seem to recall that the interview was held in Ålesund. I wasn't from Dalsfjord, so that may have been the reason I didn't get accepted.

                      I liked this image Thijs... the green bouy balanced out the image of a green boat.

                      Clearly she is doing river boating too, with the low superstructure on the stern.
