    One of the new pilot boats "Los 128" in Tromsø strait today.
    I guess they run som tests for a few days to see how the new boat works.

            20th July, pilot boats LOS099 and LOS120 returned from duty at the same time in Kristiansund. This is not happening every day.

              Great moment in time capture from Sterkoder. Lovely pilot boats in picturesque Kristiansund!

                  Lovely video, beautifuly shot.
                  I also looked at one of a cable laying ship - it was not, as far as I could see, doing anything other than passing out from port to sea - but the only comment was on the view of the glorious sunset near the end of the video.
                  Well, what else could one say?!

                    yes,there's no doubt of what is passing there

                  That would be a great, private pleasure boat when she completes her current duty as pilot boat.

                  But with a large engine, probably quite uneconomically.

                      In English, that activity is known as "jumping" and the ladder as a "jumping ladder".

                      Jumping is more usually performed ship-to-ship with the two vessels side by side and making the same speed. I have done it but only ever under calm conditions. It's a lot more challenging when there's a swell because the two ships will typically move vertically with respect to each other. The jump needs to be timed just right.

                      The ice-to-ship jump in the video is impressive.

                      ''Lesath'' racing into the port of Rotterdam.



                      which one is crossing the line first?

                          White-caps. Looks like a rough ride. Pilots and their crews must have good stomachs. Great action shot.
