    The reason for the swedish flag is that the vessel comes directly from Dockstadvarvet AB in Sweden (just stopped for the night in Ålesund yesterday), and I belive she's not officially under norwegian command yet.
    Thanks for that. I'm greatly relieved!!!

      Took some other pictures today and was on my way home when I suddenly saw something unfamiliar inbetween two houses as I drove home. A new pilot-vessel? Swedish flag...??
      Needless to say I made the sharpest and quickest U-turn ever made by a car (yes, Oistein...., I did), and the first image here was made almost before my car had stoped


      Illegal U-turn : 4200 NOK
      In a hurry, not using direction light: 2000 NOK -
      In a hurry unfasten your safety-belt when car still is in motion 750 NOK

      You get 50% off the two last, due to several offences at the same time.

      You just saved: 5575 NOK or 900 US$



      What a scoop.
      I know that the Government are doing everything to get rid of Norwegian shipping, but that the Pilot vessels now are using Swedish flag....

      Hopefully Ålesund stil is a norwegian city.

          WOW....., I might just go out and by myself a better camera then

          Seriously, I'm very much aware of other traffic when I drive around on spotting missions. And in case I have to slow down or make a stop, I've made it a habit to use my mirrors all the time.
          As for the U-turn today, belive it or not, I used my direction-lights...., first a couple or three to the right when turning off the road, then to the left.
          (So there I guess we can take 2.000,- off the ticket).

          Jepp..., it's yardnr. 560 from Dockstavarvet AB in Docksta, Sweden.

          And I have to take back my statement about "a series" of vessels of this design from this yard. There are only two; LOS 118 and LOS 120

                  What is their top speed? I see the two water jets sticking out of the stern and a large exhaust on the side. Very cool.

                              The Enterprise has a very beautiful profile and seems to be a very powerful pilot vessel.

                              I like her looks, and the images are great!
