      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...??
      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.

        I find it interesting to see where the bottom paint is in relation to the bulb and the depth marks on Nordfisk. The hull paint says she spends most of her time floating high but the bulb is mostly useless until she is loaded.

                    One time, long ago (and I can't find the post) I seem to remember that someone asked about the long tubeat an angle alongside the bridge structure of fishing vessels.
                    I belive I remember the question had something to do with how the fish and net comes on board when fishing.
                    Today I found a very good answer in our local paper which have readers photos on the back side every day.
                    In the picture below, you can see the fishing net has come to the surface with 600 tons of herring alongside "Liaholm".
                    The net hooks up to a holding point near the bow spring, then hooks up to go through the puller (the triplex) before being transported/pulled through the tube beside the bridge and then put ready at the stern for another catch later.
                    The herring is being pumped on board via the proboscis which suck both herring and seawater.
                    The fish goes down in the room, while you can see the seawater runs back in the sea from the boat deck. I guess this might be a bit interesting to at least inlanders around the world..., and I belive a picture of the hole process say more than trying to explain with thousand words...
