        Back on track with an image of a coastal freighter called Folla which I think is doing service for a company called Biomar (fish farm feeding company?): seen arriving at Rorvik an afternoon just before Christmas.

          Sorry, Sir!! I guess we were cought by the joy and happyness of the holidays...

          By the way;
          Nice picture of "Folla". She's a general cargo/pallet carrier owned by Folla Sjøtransport AS in Rørvik. Formar name was "Hardangerfjord" and she's yardnr. 106 from Th. Hellesøy Skipsbyggeri in 1982....;-)

            No problem at all...

            Ummm... thanks for the information on Folla: I guess this is not the same Folla as before (as in 10 - 15 years ago) then? Do you happen to know when she changed her name from Hardangerfjord to Folla?

            I thought this was the famous Folla which assisted Narvik when she ran aground back in 1997/98 some time....

                My info says 1994, when she also had a rebuilt. Don't know how she looked before that though...

                  My pleasure!!!
                  I was particularly satisfied with that first one alongside the dock....

                    Fantastic weather here in Kristiansund today, and as I drove along I spotted a nice little tug by a remote dock.
                    Let me present to you "Oskar" which I belive is from Ålesund...
                    "Oskar" was built at Seutelvens Verksted in Fredrikstad as yardnr. 66 in 1952.
                    Latest:
                    just found out that this little beauty in fact was bought by a chap younger than me, living not far from me, earlier this year.
                    Yes, it sailed with Ålesund as home port before, but now it's new home port is Kristiansund as she's the first vessel of the new company Frei Taubåtservice AS (Frei Tugboat service Ltd.).
                    Thought you might want to get updated on the latest info....

                      Hello Jan-Olav, and happy new year!

                      The Folla assisting Narvik in 1991 sails now under the name "GG Hunter" She was sold from NTS in 1994 and was then named Utsira and covered the Haugesund - Utsira line.

                      I had the pleasure traveling with Folla in 1993 when a friend and I was going on a biking trip in Vikna. We traveled with Folla all the way from Trondheim to Rørvik, a 24 hour trip as the ship called at tons of places, big and small, including Namsos. A great trip it was

                        Thanks for the info ostafjells... Surprised the year of Narvik's grounding: it seems so much more near in time, but then again: time flies!
