    Awesome image: glad you did this one, I love it because it shows a ship in other-then-picture-perfect weather.... Well done, and well spotted Sir!

    Browsing through this thread, blue appears to be a very popular color for fishing boats. I wish we could see more of this on passenger ships as well, it's such a great color for ships. Actually, green doesn't look that bad either! (I had always thought before, that green was a horrendous color for ships, but not any longer).

        Here she is on a trip north with water in tanks in March 2009.

        OK so the Main deck is actually well out of water. (I can see the deck line mark) It is the colour scheme that makes it look like she is too heavily loaded.
        Although on this one it can't be much to spare.

        Maybe you could explain this with "water in the tanks" versus "loaded"?

          I think I have seen pictures posted for two+ years of boats loaded with capelin. I have finally searched to find what is a "capelin".

          Odd that such an important fish is really not known in the USA. The sardine and herring are well known here but the capelin not so much.

              I'm curious ... is this a trawler, and what kind of fish might it be going for?

                That is a Boom Trawler. They drag two of those nets you see hanging over the side behind them along the bottom to catch anything, but aiming for Soles, Flounders and anything else that live at/near the bottom.

                    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.

                                A blond question, but does anyone know, what is a "Findus-trawler"?
