    I wonder how the TEXELSTROOM would have worked on my fjord.... I doubt her low freeboard would have been great, nor the lack of bow.

      First compare the dimensions. She is a real big one, so maybe the bow is looking lower that it is. But for sure the Texel-Den Helder route is normally not hidden by high waves. And if, they will stop the service, i guess. But we have members very close to it, maybe they have more information.

      You are so correct Ralf, this is indeed a much larger ferry.

      I did find this online information on her:

      "The ferry is 135m-long and 28m-wide, and has the capacity to carry 1,750 passengers and 350 vehicles."

      That is a lot of passengers! 3 times what mine can carry... and three times the vehicles too!

    "Lurøy" on her way south to Sandnessjøen this evening.She came from the ferry connection Øksfjord - Hasvik in Finnmark county.

          Awesome new additions - thanks for sharing with us all, and with me.

          Vaggasvarre image is also really interesting with the reflections on her hull, showing off all her years of paint-layers.

            Usually car ferry BARØY sail between Bognes and Lødingen, but today she made a call to Kristiansund on her way to Leirvik in Sogn.
            BARØY was built at Remantowa, Gdansk, Poland and delivered to company Torghatten Nord AS in December 2012.
            The length is 93 meters, she is 16,8 meters wide and can hold 320 cars and 390 passengers. Her operating speed is 17 knots, with 20,8 knots as top.
            What she's doing in Leirvik? I don't know.

                Very nice shots of the BARØY by you, Sterkoder.... as far as I know, she was headed to Leirvik i Sogn for her annual maintenance and repairs. She might even still be there.

                Thank you also Tom McNikon for sharing those images of the Bastø-ferries... not too different from the new battery ferries we get in about a year on Trondheimsfjorden.

                  "Dolly C" ex.Salangen was sold from Torghatten nord AS earlier this month to Grenada, in the Caribbean
                  Built at Tromsø Shipyard in 1972 named Goalsevarre to Bjørklids Ferjerederi as.
                  It sailed the stretch between Hansnes (Ringvassøy) and Stakkvik (Reinøy) north of Tromsø.

                  The ferry is currently located to anchor north east of Torquay in the English Channel
                  Begins to be many old ferries that have been sold to the Caribbean in recent years from the north.

                    Some broker must have good contacts both in the north of Norway and the Caribbean.
                    Is it a sun seeking local up there, or somebody else with the right contacts in both places, I wonder??

                  "Hasfjord" inbound to Tromsø this evening.
                  She came directly from Hammerfest.

                    Especially liked this one - I think it's where the red light is in the frame of the photo, and its glorious reflections. And then my 'normal' amazement and admiration for your photography when I look at the background and realise how fast she was heading into port! I also found this to be a most interesting vessel and got pleasantly engossed in reading about her.
                    I know I don't always get around to commenting on all your posts dear Bengt, but be assured that I never miss a single one

                      Ah, Ekornes chairs! I would expect nothing less.

                      (I have owned a "Prince" and a "Royal" since 1987).

                      Oh this is all rather wow-worthy! - the ferry, the photography ...and indeed the chairs!
                      Thanks all!

                      Ekornes, quality from Sunnmore!!!
                      Nobody should go to sea without at least one Stress less. (Tell that to Hurtigruten before they create more "grandmother's sitting room" on their boats)

                    Wonderful collection from the new Møkstrafjord, Tom!

                    She actually looks very similar to the one's we get here in Trondheim in less than a year!
