    Thanks for your pictures guys! :-)
    That bridge of HUA HAI LONG must be one of the coldest I've ever seen. And I'm not talking about temperature. (Yes, I've seen a few, but of course..., not as many as others in here).

      hahahaha.... great shots, Tommi.... Loved and laughed at the way the emergency stop sign was "extended" towards the actual button!

      Trondheim is come to stay! YEAH!

          Probably enough to distract and confuse the Navigator. Look out the window, the real world is there.
          Alternatively; take the command away from the Master and navigator on watch and leave it to a computer that NEVER make a bad judgment.
          (Unless the Programmer has insufficient experience to foresee every conceivable situation, that is)

        I like reports from ship bridges, so thank you so much Tommi!! :-)

        (All the boys in my street wanted to be a fireman or police, I wanted to be a ship captain. Then, life took a completely different turn..., but that's another story)

        Anyway, I'm not sure what those digits mean, (maybe the compass course?), 101.4, 101.5, 101.6.
        They seem rather important since so many "boxes" show them, so to experts: what are they, and why does it differ after the point?? :-)
        (Not exactly a "what's the meaning of life"-question, but anyway)

          Yes they are all compass courses, and the reason for the difference is that they are different types of compasses.
          The 101.5 and 101.4 are repeaters for the gyro and magnetical (?) compasses. The display located above the window displaying 101.6 is a GPS-compass.

          The "extra" laptop in #258/2 is belonging to the pilot, not that he is actually using it for navigation. It's mostly used for planning and verification of turn rates and to display AIS-information.

        This vessel is a little special to me.
        ICELAND CEMENT was built in Kristiansund as a bulk carrying cargo vessel and delivered from Sterkoder shipyard as yard nr. 63 in January 1978 as SOLKLINT.
        Since then it has both been rebuilt from bulk to cement and lengthened ;-)


        To show the ship itself, I lent a picture from www.shipspotting.com

          I'm still pretty amused how everything kind of goes around in this world. I just had the time to have a brief look at the ships marinetraffic-profile before boarding, great to know that she was built at Sterkoder shipyard, I wish I would have known that for a couple days ago. That also explains why there was quite much Norwegian equipment on board.

                    A very specialized type of vessels that has been seen a few times on different threads in CVF is the Live Fish Carriers / Well Boats.
                    Yesterday two of them was moored along Sjogata in Aalesund. I had no excuse to get on board, but here is some details as seen from the wharf.

                        You are invited for a visit onboard one of the strangest ships afloat, the seismic vessel Ramform Titan: https://vimeo.com/182831610
                        Sorry, commentary are in Norwegian. If you don't know the language, just turn off the sound. You should get an idea about the size and shape of this vessel anyhow.
