        Your evening and night time shots are out of this world - I wish I was that good at making such images!

        I'm so impressed - I love them!

          Thank you,pakarang

        I saw several of these boats in the Gulf of Thailand in the mouth of the Chao Phraya River. I assume they are fishing boats. Does anyone know how they use those long poles?

          I have seen reports about night fishing, where they are using big lights to attract the fishes. Could it be such an installation?

        I found this article re; a trawler built at Hatloy back in 1969 on smp.no today: http://www.smp.no/pluss/2017/03/01/%...ick_articles=2
        Apparently there have been a program on NRK about this vessel a few days ago.

        Here is the story of the F/V"Thunder" in The Guardian from 2015: https://www.theguardian.com/environm...pherd-rescuers

        Those with long memories may remember that I posted pictures of this vessel in this thread at the time (Post #836) If not, here is the pictures:

          It must be some sort of a Facebook-joke, but I had to smile:
          In Norway, the Environmentalist Green Party (Miljøpartiet De Grønne) has come up with a proposal to limit NoX, CO2 and other bad things from fishing vessels:
          We should stop using fishingboats, because there are always enough fish in the fishmarkets and groserystores anyway (hahaha) ;-)

            And now the party leader is afraid that this joke will cost them seats in the next election.
            Maybe they should do something with all the hopeless suggestions and solutions they are trying to implement in the real world.

            Nice images of what appears to be a really beautiful looking fishing vessel (Christine E).... how nerdy is it to admit that I like the design of a fishing vessel?

              Pakarang - Nerdy? Maybe, but I'd rather say you just recognise GORGEOUS when you see it! Form and function in one vessel.
              And Grindøya - a ‘busy’ complicated backdrop to a vessel's superstructure that could also be described with similar words! Usually a challenge for a photographer! - but your studies of ship and background succeed and delight me more and more.

                  I have been following that story with great interest over the past few weeks. Remøy is a giant of a fishing vessel, and it seems as a details stopped her from sailing.

                    Since Bengt has abdicated his throne, much to everybody's regret, I have to take up the slack.
                    Here is a few fishing vessels seen in Aalesund the last few weeks.
                    First a regular, the Trawler/Seiner M.Ytterstad of Harstad:






                    As far as lines go, she compares favourably with the Cruise ships shearing the Fishery Pier cum Cruise centre:


                    Maybe with exception of this cruise ship?:

                        Here is a Scottish Trawler/Seiner that has spent a few weeks idle here in Aalesund. (Still here):




                        She appears to be registered in Banff:


                        Or is it Gardentown???:


                        A majestic bow view:


                        I have no idea why she is still here, after over a month left idle at the wharf. (??)

                          Another Coastal Seiner that dropped by for a day or two:




                          That's all the fishing boats I have captured lately. (More to follow when seen)
