      Almost like a vacuum cleaner for the sea floor... is this type of fishing only suitable in areas where there is muddy sea beds, or can they also do rocky shores?

        I've seen many strange names on boats in my time, but never one such as this...., the "Martin-Marie"

        This vessel might belong to a fisherman who couldn't decide whether to honour his son or daughter.

          This kind of fishing is very typical for the North Sea coast, in the Waddensea areas. Rocks will destroy the nets, so they need sandy ground.

                Waow... those are beautiful photographs! You are my idol... and imagine, a Nikon managed to make such a beautiful capture...

                My favourite is the middle shot, where she is passing under the bridge. I think it is a composition which works for me.

                        Something to do with the frozen food firm Findus perhaps?

                          Ok, here we go.....;

                          First, Tom:
                          Is that factory by the bridge there by any chance Norwegian Talk AS...?? (Have a very good friend working for that firm, but I have never visited or seen his place of work).

                          Second, Bengt:
                          What in the hole wide world do you have of photo equipement????
                          I have never seen so good, bright, clear and sharp pictures from your hands!!!
                          I'm very, VERY, impressed!!

                          Third, J-O and Seagull:
                          An original "Findus-trawler" is of course a trawler with the most wonderful design, and delivered to the frozen fish company Findus in the 1970s! Guess which yard made all the original "Findus-trawlers"..? Beguinning with S....

                          Here's an image of a "Findus-trawler"

                            ....
                            Could it be the STORLI shipyard....

                            Thanks for the explanation Sterkoder: if I get any smarter now, my head will burst at the seams.

                              -"Dad....., one question....."
                              -"Yes, dear..., what is it?"
                              -"Why do you know EVERYTHING???"

                              Cute, wasn't it...?
