    Ships in Aalesund 2019

    The new year starts a bit slow, but here is the new Coastal Authority vessel OV Ryvingen out trying her equipment close to home base.
    She won the Motor Ship Award for innovative and environmental friendly design: https://www.kystverket.no/Nyheter/20...ts-nye-fartoy/
    (No lack of space and comfort for the crew)

    Bruvik is such a beauty of a vessel.... and yes, I agree, that graffiti wall in the background does indeed spoil the view.

    The Bruvik is kept busy these days, taking tourist for a quick look around on Hjorundfjord, the least exploited fjord in Sunnmore:




    Seen alongside at Stornespiren today:

    The graffiti in the background is spoiling the view.

    Fjord 1 ferry Hjorundfjord heading in to Aalesund 07.March:

    A bit chopped off, but they look much the same at both ends.
    Nice. I'm not 100% sure right now, right on the mark, but I believe the HJØRUNDFJORD (and STORFJORD) was christened at the same time and day in Poland back in 2009. I remember walking on board her, she was far from completed. Pretty sure it was this one.

    This is number 6 in a 100 year old row of "Betelskip" with the name Elieser X. The one I remember seeing regularly in my young and tender days was this one: https://www.sjohistorie.no/no/skip/703741/

    The present one, Elieser 6, was built in 1980: https://www.sjohistorie.no/no/skip/703523/

    Surprise to see the Betelship still operating and "alive"... she's been a round for a while, a long while.

    The rest is ships and boats seen in Borgundfjorden from the comfort of our veranda, starting with my old friend Buddy heading off for another assignment somewhere:




    Coastal seiner Albacore heading to Holsfita with a load of herring:




    Unknown coaster of some sort (live fish or feed carrier??):


    Famous local seiner Gunnar Langva heading towards Vedde:

    Not much ships to show yet. Not because there aren't ships in Aalesund but it is too cold, wet or slippery (take your pick) to wander around town looking for ships to photograph.
    Here is the few I have so far. Starting with the "Bethelship" Elieser 6:




    The coastal tanker Hatlebakk Bergen at Skansekaia (for whatever reason):




    Some ships have been sitting in layup at Stornespiren since last year:
