    Until I spent some hours in Kristiansund in late October, Honningsvag was my favourite town in Norway....it may be a temporary thing, but Kristiansund was so.....beautifully maintained and cared for by its citizens that it is now #1.....

      Thank you. Always happy about getting nice comments to my hometown, and coming from a foreign visitor makes them more valuable :-)

      ....And I loved those Archaean rocks carefully putting up with houses built around their bases on the shore opposite the wharf.

    Svein, what have you been up to - apart from going to a christening!? Just get that ankle better as soon as possible.

      Ankle is getting better, not hurting anymore..., but slightly swollen. Belive I slipped on a wet pine root when walking on Kvernberget about 14 days ago.
      Didn't twist the ankle, so I thought nothing of it. Should have, apparently :-)

    These are two wonderful shots of an impressive vessel.

    WAOW..... 121 meters long too! That is just 1.4 meters shorter than mine, but a whole lot cooler looking.

            Some of these vessels are truly GIGANTIC when it comes to size.

              A seismic vessel "Polar Duke" in layup at Slinningen;

              The long term charterer Dolphin has just declared bankruptcy.

              Next door is two Voldstad PSVs in layup:


              A lot more in layup around in the district,

                Looking here for example, the "Main Class" line entry is interesting. It reads :

                Main Class: +1A1, SF, E0, DK(+), HL(2,8), Oilrec, Dynpos-AUTR
                Is there a "Rosetta Stone" for these abbreviations?

                  All you ever wanted to know about classification and abbreviations used by DNV-GL: https://exchange.dnv.com/Exchange/en/MainClass.html

                  In your sample from FAR STAR, which is a fairly basic PSV, the following can be read:
                  +1A1 (Plus is a substitute for "Maltese Cross"): Built to highest class requirements
                  SF:Implies classification of stability and floatability
                  E0: Equipped to allow Engine (Control) Room to be unmanned for extended periods.
                  DK(+): Deck(s) strengthened for heavy cargo.
                  HL(2.8): Tanks for heavy liquids (Up to 2.8 Sp.g)
                  Oilrec: Equipped to handle and carry recovered Oil from spills.
                  Dynpos-AUTR: Dynamic Positioning system eqv. to IMO DP-2 class.

                  Here is abbreviation for FAR SAMSON, the world's most powerful tug cum complex CSV:
                  DNV +1A1, Tug, Supply Vessel Basic, SF, COMF-V(3)C(3), HELDK-SH, CRANE, DEICE, E0, DYNPOS-AUTRO, NAUTOSV(A), CLEAN DESIGN, DK(+), BIS, TMON
                  Now go figure.

                  Ah, thanks Ombugge. I was rather expecting the answer to involve the IMO. The existence of DNV-GL had somehow escaped me.

                In Whole-life Cost modelling, the final phase is usually "Disposal", which can yield either a +ve (cost) or a -ve (revenue).

                So which is it with offshore vessels - PSVs, AHTSs and the like. Is disposal typically an additional cost to the industry, or is some of the acquisition cost typically recovered.

                  Nice shots.... these two must be sister ships, apart from the helicopter landing pad.

                      Now in Tidewater colours, so this must be some time ago??

                    The former GRAMPIAN SPRITE stand-by vessel is sold to a company at Averøy near Kristiansund, the North Sea Marine AS.


                    The vessel got a new name, NSM SEA,...., and before you look at the next picture, please be sure to not drink any beverages so that there are milk, coffee or anything else that might come out of your nose

                      Whoever painted that were not drinking milk or coffee that is for sure.

                      I guess I know how they did it.
                      The "painter" stood on deck, leaning over the railing..., spraying looking upside-down.... But funny, yes :-)

                    The soon to be Solstad's Normand Maximus in animation: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NCtx-bEHKVQ

                    Here is her "history" so far:
                    The hull was built at Tusla, Romania and first towed down the Danube in two parts: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iqU9Ffdw0uw

                    Then towed to Norway by Nor Chief: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vzmU4RyuPfA

                    Assisted into Brattvaag by several local tugs: http://maritimt.com/nyheter/2015/nor...-brattvag.html

                    She got a little too heavy for the tugs during the recent storm Tor: http://www.smp.no/nyheter/2016/01/29...g-12093445.ece

                    PS> You see this vessel in post #1712 as well.

                      The FAR Sleipner is one of the most modern CSVs in the world. Seen here in a drone video taken in Aalesund when new: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cQxsTUev22k
