      Here is a Time Laps video somewhat like the Time Laps of Hurtigruten minute for minute, only this voyage lasted 33 days and happened to be in familiar waters to me.
      The facilities and type of ship has changed a lot since I traded these waters in 1968-1970.

      33 days duration reduced to 14 min.:

                    I found the following ad on gcaptain:
                    Deckineer
                    Description
                    Unlicensed Engineer Wanted for 180' Class Supply Boat. Hiring Now. Must have knowledge of Caterpillar, Cummings and John Deer engines. Some knowledge of hydraulics and manifold sysytems a plus. Duties include cleaning the engine room and all machinery. Must be familiar with the use of hand tools and the machinery layout of the vessel. Maintain and grease/oil all equiptment gears, shafts, and bearings. Must be able to keep accurate engineers logs, assist on deck with cargo operations, tying up vessel and any other duties that may be assigned. Must have TWIC Card, Merchant Mariners Credentials and Valid Drivers License. Must be able to pass drug/alcohol & backround check. Good Working atmosphere and Benefits: Health, Dental & 401K offered.

                    Deckineer is a new title to me, but say something about the qualification standard required in the US GOM still.

                    Reminds me of a joke that used go around in Norway back in the 1960;
                    "Wanted!! Engineer who knows how to cook and have local knowledge on the coast. Must have forklift driver licence".

                              Thanks for this voyage. Fascinating to see such manoeuvres with container vessels. I will now look up where the Kiel canal is!!
