      Thank you for all the great pictures. I do not know why I like the ones showing the bow opening best. I think I like anything with mechanical bits in motion.

        Sometimes a ferry needs overhaulin' and here's "Bolsøy" at Kristiansund Mech.

          Thank you Sterkoder. I love the pictures of the ferry out of the water.

          I have never seen hydraulic "clamps" or supports to hold the ship upright. It makes sense. I just wonder why you do not see them everywhere.

            They are very common here in Norway, and of course mostly with shipyards that spesialice in ship repair.

            If you look closely in the lower left corner of my first picture, you'll see smaller hydraulic clamps for smaller vessels....

                  Boknafjord between Hareid and Sulesund. She is now borrowed from Stavangerske AS (I have also heard that Tide Sjø has bought her) for a while when the Tidefjord is at the drydocks for a couple of weeks. She will also be there when the other ferry Tidesund is at the drydocks.

                  Boknafjord:
                  Ex. Austrheim -1995
                  Ex. Bjørnefjord - 2001
                  Built in 1986 at Trønderverftet, Hommelvik
                  3692 GT
                  86,24 meters long
                  15,5 meters wide

                    It just struck me, Norway must be one of the largest ferry countries in the world. I don't think there are many countries which comes even close to the number we have in service in these fjords and seas....

                    Maybe Finland has a high number?

                      Tide cannot buy what they already own
                      Tide Sjø is owned by Stavangerske, so all HSD and Stavangerske ferries are the properties of Tide Sjø

                            Singapore Ferries

                            Here is a ferry of a type previously used to carry lorries to and from the Refineries on Pulau Bukom and other Islands off mainland Singapore.
                            Now trading containers on trucks across Singapore Strait, to/from Batam Island, Indonesia.


                            And here is the replacement on the Pu.Bukom run. (Soon to be replaced by an underwater tunnel)


                            Several of the other refinery islands has been joined into the large Jurong Island, which is connected to the mainland by a causeway.

                              This is one of Wightlinks ro ro ferries that serve the Portsmouth - Fishbourne route (Fishbourne Isle of Wight). This is the 'St Faith' just heading into the Fishbourne terminal.



                              And here she is docked but with the bow ramp still up. I would have stopped to take some pictures of her unloading, but as i had to catch this ferry i had to get back to my car to present my ticket to the staff member that was rapidly approaching my car in the Que!

                                On the crossing back to the mainland we passed the 'St Clare'. She also serves the same route but is much newer than other vessels that serve the route.
