    Funnels: Artistic, Interesting - and just ordinary!!

    I was looking through some images yesterday and wondered about funnels. Ships ones, not the devices you use to get liquids from one type of container to another.

    I searched the forums and couldn't find a funnel thread - so despite the danger that I will be considered weird - what funnel photos do we have - especially artistic or otherwise interesting ones.

    A few to start with:

    Nordstjernen



    Lofoten



    Crown of Scandinavia

    Cheers,

    Mark.

    This is really a classic shipspotter topic. There's a strange faschination for funnels along people with maritime interest. Seagull and I discussed this a while ago. While the pakarang-view is quite special for CVF, the funnel picture is fundamental for ship nerds.


    Amorella.


    Richard With in Trollfjord.


    A rather strange design on the Stralsund-sisters.


    Birka Paradise.


    Birka Paradise again.


    And a real old one Kalypso, from 1993.

      Interesting theme for a thread..., and as Tommi say, there's something about the funnel of a ship. Nerdy or not....
      Inspired by this thread, the fact that we live in darkness here so I don't have fresh pictures to work with and since I haven't worked with pictures for a long time, I discovered that my different albums had a lot of funnels in them.
      I'm sure there's more, but let me just start by these few, and first, "Lofoten"s funnel in transition going from OVDS to HG


      While we are with the HR, here's "Narvik"


      "Sjøkurs"


      "Astoria"


      And if I'm not mistaken, "Astoria" became "Saga Pearl II", so here's how the funnel looked then (now)

        Hey ho - we're onto something here - I like Tommi's Swedish big boats! Not sure whether Serenade or Symphony, but have a Silja big sister to join your snowy Birka!!



        I absolutely adore the Helsinki - Stockholm run - especially inbound to Stockholm - simply stunning.


        As ever Sterkoder comes up with something interesting and different! I particularly love the split personality Lofoten one!!

          "Marco Polo" visited us in 2007


          NCLs "Norwegian Jade"


          "Balmoral"


          "Boudicca"


          "Saga Rose". Sadly this is no more, as this beauty was broken up in China in October 2010


          HALs "Prinsendam"

            How about a fast ferry from the 'Red Funnel' line, passing a very famous funnel at Southampton this weekend. Does that count as two?

            Of course Saga Rose used to be Sagafjord - so two Cunard ships in two posts??

              "Dolphin Voyager"


              "Silver Cloud"


              "Discovery"


              "Amadea"


              And the final one from me at this point, "Stord I", an old steamship of the Hordaland company HSD

                Gosh Svein, but you've got the complete set!

                My last one for tonight - a hazy view from the White Cliffs across Dover Harbour. Pride of Calais and one of the DFDS ships in the haze.



                Thanks Tommi and Sterkoder for making this so much fun already!

                    Well, Mark..., I don't know..., it seems I got quite a few after all
                    I also said I would stop for now, but who can possibly stop now that we are in such a good motion?
                    Not me, so here are a few not connected with cruise, and I start with "Superspeed I" in Kristiansand three years back


                    Tanker "Annelise Theresa"


                    Research vessel "Johan Hjort"


                    "Cemstar"

                      Re: Funnels: Artistic, Interesting - and just ordinary!!

                      Veteran vessel "Hindholmen"


                      Tanker "Navion Norvegia"


                      Not a very common design, but this is the result if the ship designers absolutly want the superstructure and funnel to be of equal size.

                              The center of the eye of the seal is white on the Serenade.

                              A bit hard to see.
