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

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

    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.

    Yes, this is the first of two to be built for Buksér og Berging to cover pilot services all around. There is an option for 8 more.
    This LOS 127 spent a few days in Kristiansund to run some tests.

    Nice catch....! Perhaps this is one of the future pilot boats that are to start service all around the coast in Norway.

    May he got lost and ended up in KSU instead of AES???

    A new pilot boat appeared in the Kristiansund harbour today. Never seen it before.
    This is LOS 127, a Alusafe 1620 BB Pilot delivered from Maritime Partner AS to Bugsér og Berging AS 11. November 2016.
    I thought this was to become the new pilot boat in Kristiansund, but a pilot contacted me and said this is the new pilot boat in Ålesund.

    Watch this pilot trying to board a Container ship off Portugal: http://gcaptain.com/watch-sketchy-pi...r-arrangement/
    Looking at the roll period this vessel must be close to her stability limit.

    Hopefully he survived long enough to be rescued? In high winds and a confused sea it is one of the more risky occupations.
