        The same effect as taking a bathingball between your hands and bring it a meter or so under water when in a pool.
        When you release your grip on the ball, be sure to keep your face away...., because that ball will be a rocket.

        Trapped air when forced under water have tremendous power...

          I've delivered pictures of "Viking Athene" before...., I know...., but it is something I can't put my finger on when it comes to the design of this vessel. I like it alot! Maybe it got something to do with her appearing strong and "standing tall"....? I don't know, here's another picture taken in Kristiansund this afternoon....

            She does indeed appear very 'sturdy and strong' and she got a pleasant design, even though it is a bit bulky. Sometimes, it just works very well, I agree.

                    Great captures from Tromso...

                    I wonder though, why this vessel, Svartfoss, often when I see her, she has a significant forward trim...

                      More and less every time she or her sister ship is sailing by they have forward trim.But even though they have this forward trim, they are going with a service speed between 15.5 - 16.5 knots.But it look's a bit odd,because its seldom to se this two ships at even keel.I have seen her fully loaded many times,but still she has big forward trim.I wonder if this is a economic way to sail

                          Some ships does indeed produce better speeds at forward trim, but it is quite unusual I think. The only other ship I can think of sailing better at forward trim, was the Leeward of Norwegian Cruise Line: she sailed best at 1.05 meter forward trim because the water slipped better away from the stern then (she had a very unusual design beneath the water line and aft trim created additional drag aft of the ship).

                          pilotdane: thanks for the Panama Canal capture of today: I think it looks like one of the Silver Seas - ships...: could it be the Silver Shadow maybe?

                              sommelier
                              For those in favour of beer out there (me included), a sommelier is someone who knows his/her wines....

                              EDIT: By the way, "Silver Shadow" was last seen in the Panama Canal according to my info, so that might most certainly be her...

                                "Libas" on her way in Tromsøysundet this morning.She is loaded with 900 tons of capelin fishing in the Barenz sea close to the Russian border.
                                The ship is heading to Sommarøy(outside of Tromsø) for delivery.





                                A few minutes later "Harvest" went by Tromsøysundet with 750 tons of capelin.Destination Måløy/Florø.
