  • Due to strong winds yesterday, they had to turn around to go back to the quay because the conditions in Eidkjosen was bad because of the strong wind.
    But early this morning there were good conditions so that they could put the bow on the shoreline to unload gravel as usual.

    "Martin H" and sister ship "Helene H" operates along the coast in the north, both inshore and offshore.

    Thanks for the comment, Ralf

      Is she "open hatch" (I.e. hold allowed to flood)???

        Was Kristian a brother or father of Richard With?

    • Egil Ulvan Shipowners has since its inception in 1919 been run as a family line. Today, the third and fourth generation father and son who is at the helm.

      It looks like With the name was something they agreed that their vessels should have since it is a family name back in time.
      It has no connection to Richard With.

      Here is a link to the company website (sorry, only in Norwegian) : http://www.ulvan-rederi.no/om-oss/historien

        • "Polarsyssel" into Breivika harbor this morning.
          They have been laid up at the disused naval base Olavsvern south of Troms° since mid-december 2016.

          They are operating under the Governor of Svalbard nine months of the year.
          Now it is almost time to prepare the ship for a new season again.

            Don't know why I like this photo of Polarsysse; whether it is the heaped snow in the background, the lines of the ship kind of matching the background or whatever - it is appealing to me too.

        • 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.

          • Thanks for your nice comment,Seagull

            "Polarsyssel" left Troms° last night and set course south for Nesna.Nordland.
            They sail to Westcon shipyard Helgeland to go into dry dock.

              • Folla Maritime Transport AS owns the cargo vessel "Folla 2" as goes in weekly route between Namsos and Troms°. "Folla 2" is 53 meters long, 12 meters wide and is equipped with large side port, pallet lift, two cranes and unloading facilities for fish feed. The boat's size makes it can tarnish relatively small ports and docks, and at the northbound route to Troms° is the stop by 20-25 ports when needed.
                The main customers are Moelven woodwork on northbound route and EWOS with fish feed on southbound. In addition transports they have different types of goods for a number of other customers.

                  • "Lance" is laid up in Eidkjosen
                    But I reckon that is not as long before she heading up to Svalbard with scientists aboard directed by the Norwegian Polar Institute.
                    There was some sun with little snow sprinkle in the air when I took the picture yesterday.

                      Nice view cabin on the top of the mast. I guess this is used for manoeuvers in the ice to detect the best way of passage?!

                  • Yes, and to look for seals on the ice when they were on seal hunting.

                    The history of the RV "Lance" can be read at this link which is in English:

                      Ombugge, you are right. In our news, seal hunting is always combined with the killing of seal babies with wooden sticks to protect the coat.
                      So our people are a bit .... sensitive.

                      Yes, the Brigitte Bardot effect. Reality is a bit different, but don't try to tell that to anybody who KNOW all about it.

                      Is it more humane to let the seal population in the Arctic get so large that they run out of food and slowly starve to death, which is nature's way of population control.

                      Alternatively they seek to the more populated areas and get stuck in fishing nets, suffering slow and painful drowning.

                      Culling is carried out around the North Sea, because of the population growth. The only difference is that the carcases are dumped, or destructed, not used for anything productive.

                      Long live ill-informed sensitivity!!

                      A movie about the Last Sealers is now in cinemas in Norway. Here is the trailer: http://www.dagbladet.no/video/yon9y0qpuoY
                      Anybody know whether it can be found for free download yet??
