    And than from Grimmerhaugen, just before she departed:


      No this is not torpedo tubes:

      This is water scoops at the bow of the Live fish carrier Ro West


        HSC Godøy heading towards Vegsundet and onward to Øye in Hjørundfjorden:

        The tourist ferry Veøy on her way from Vegsund Slipp and returning to Geiranger for the season:

        HSC Nørvøy approaching Langevåg on her regular run from Ålesund:

        A RIB heading towards Nørvasundet:

        Several of these are used to carry tourists on exiting trips to Runde and Alnes etc.


          Glad to see the good-ol-gal Veøy is still running strong... wonder how many more seasons she gets to do at Geiranger?

          Probably not too many, as environmental concerns gain momentum.

            The Coastal Authority's work vessel ONA seen alongside at the Storneset Fishery Pier with what looks like a small J/U work platform on the back deck:

            Not sure how they launch this platform (if that is what it is) but I'm curious enough to go have a look next time she is at their base here in Norvevika.

            ONA specs:


              A "Viking ship" under oar power heading to town:

              Their rowing technique left some to be desired.
              (They should have taken a lesson from the dragon boats and their use of drum beat to maintain discipline and rythme)

              The same boat I believe. Here seen in town a few days later:

              PS> I presume the paying "guests" gets to row the boat on their "ultimate viking tour".


                Car ferry Tysfjord leaving from Fiskerstrand:


                  Fish feed carrier Gaasoe Jarl heading towards Fiskerstrand:

                    Trawler/seiner Roedholmen going back to the fishing grounds while flushing/cleaning tanks:

                    Trawler Ole Arvid Nergaard seen outbound on Valderhaugfjorden:


                      Eimskip's Polfoss outbound from Aalesund:


                        An interesting stowage solution for the dingy on this French sailboat:

                        A visitor from far away:

                        Another French visitor:

                        And from a close neighbour:

                        And an even closer neighbour:

                        The name Rembakk originally belonged to a rather famouse (at least locally) fishing vessel.

                          Quite a long jaunt for the Sydney-based yacht, and yet such a voyage has been done umpteen times, mostly with safe arrivals at the end of the voyage.

                        Fish feed carrier Nyksund at Sjogata:


                          Did I mention that Hjorundfjorden is becoming more and more attractive as a tourist destination?
                          Here is a new HSC seen in Aalesund a few days ago:

                          They are offering 3xdaily trips from Aalesund to Oye, with stop in Trandal

                          Another newcomer to the tourist scene in Aalesund is this slick craft:

                          With two tiny Outboard motors suitable putter around the islands and fjords at a leisurely speed:


                            The Fjordkongen is back in town:

                            But I don't know for what purpose, since she have been tied up at Skutvikpiren for several days now.

                            A small live fish carrier by today's standard seen at Skansekaia:

                            She is far from home:


                              Some more sailboats visiting:

                              But not from as far away this time.

                              Also a motor yacht in the mid-range size and price:
