        Hard to believe that he can see anything from his steering wheel. Are there no rules to avoid such blind pilots? What is he doing alone in a harbour?

          I'm glad someone else was wondering how they can see. The bridge windows appear to be lower than the enclosed area at the bow. Not much a problem at sea where there is little to "bump" into but getting in and out of port must be fun.

              I've just returned from Bjarkøy, and in the hall in my Grandma's house, she have these pictures of ships my Grandpa worked on.
              From the left is : Kristian Tønder,Cetus*,T-50-BK Kvernsund and N-15-H Nordtind

              Close up on "Kvernsund"



              Close up on "Nordtind"



              "Cetus" is not a fishing boat, so the close up img of her will be in the Ship spotters thread

                  Some of the herring fleet are in Kristiansund due to very bad weather out in the open seas. Several more were moored to other docks here, but I didn't get to take pictures.




                  And over at Elmarin, there were a familiar boat, a tv-star so to speak. "Kvitbjørn" is 'famous' from the tv-series 'Havets Helter' aired last autumn here in Norway...

                          Fantastic sharp images, but I wonder (as I've done with some other bulbous ships and boats) about "Nordfisk"s anchors:
                          When dropping those anchors from their fully up position, how big a hole will they make in the hull...??

                            Good point....! Good observation! I guess they can only lover them carefully until they are passed the bulbous bow.

                                They would probably make quite a dent yes! :-D This is btw the first time i`ve seen anchors touching th bulb while being lowered, all others seems to clear the bulb with good margin.
                                Anyway, it`s still good seamanship to lower the anchor(s) down to the waterline before dropping them, making sure they are not fouled in any way and also making sure the windlass works properly.
