    That is a bad a$$ fishing boat. I love her lines. A strong brow over the bridge windows and some curves on the after deck. Aesthetically (how something looks) she is a fine vessel in my book.

      I can clearly envision seeing her in a new refurbished version as a super expedition yacht.

              The Winter Herring Fisheries off Western Norway

              I posted some pictures from the Golden Years of the 1950s in an earlier post, Here is some from an even earlier era, the 1920s and 30s.

              Purse-seining with oar-powered Net boats - 1938:


              The boats had to come in to Brunholmen, Aalesund to report their catch and get direction to deliver to the buyers:


              "First come, first served" principle applied, so the competition was furious to get through Moljegapet and be first to put the bow against the wharf, for the "Bas" to jump off and sprint to the Sales office, which was situated at Brunholmen:


              Especially at the start of the season, there would be a lot of boys waiting with a piece of wire in their hand, ready to storm on board and get some nice fresh and fat herring, full of roe:


              The Herrings would be sold around town - in my time at 25 Ore (NOK 0.25) for the first few days of the season. Later the price would fall to 10 Ore, or even 5 Ore late in the season. The entire town would smell of Fried Herring for a day or two. Great fun for the boys, maybe not so enjoyable for the fishermen, but it was an established and tolerated tradition that lasted well into the 1960s, I think.

              Maybe some younger Aalesund natives know when this came to an end?

                        Two trawlers from Estonia inbound to Tromsø this afternoon,but in this case "Eldborg" (to the left) was towing "Ontika" in to the harbour.
                        Tugboat "Lupus" on her way to assist "Ontika" to the pier.

                          Couldn't find a thread about trawlers in here, but as I see 'Asimut' is posting a beautiful image above here of both trawlers and a tug, I feel confident that I can post pictures of "Havbryn" in Ålesund....


                          ...and "Havstrand" with the stern of "Fiskeskjær" and "Strand Senior" visible in front of her bow

                            Sterkoder. Is this vessel one of the Sterkoders built for the russians?
