    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).

        Thanks for that, Jan-Olav

        It's okay to show pictures of the ships when the weather is not at its best. It is great with the change in weather, especially as it was today, even though I feel that we have got more snow than we need now, and we are just in middle of march.

        Blue color is an excellent choice for many of the ships we see on the ships fairway. Green color that we can look at some of the vessels, "Smaragd" , "Hargun" and "Gardar" , I think is fine and well suited to these vessels.

              Here is the load line mark to "Siglar" , it is not so easy to spot as she is loaded on most of the pictures I have.
              Here she is on a trip north with water in tanks in March 2009.

                "Eros" moored at Breivika harbour earlier today.



                "Magnarson" moored outside off "Østanger"



                "Nybo" on her way into the harbour this afternoon. They flush water overboard and the seagulls are in heaven since there probably is some leftover of capelin.



                "Sjarmør" on their way to the capelin field.

                  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"?

                    When it comes to water in the tanks, there must be something about cleaning and flushing of the tanks. (It was my first thought) Otherwise, I do not see any particular reason to bring water over greater distances. This was the case with "Siglar" in March 2009, I thought at first that they were diverted north again since it was only 48 hours since they had passed on the south. When I put the picture on another forum, I was told that they were on the north again, but with water in the tanks. I did not ask about the reason for that. That's all I know.

                    BTW, yesterday another capelin boat was loaded with seawater when she was passing by on the way north.This one had been at Sommarøy to unload capelin.

                        Friday afternoon, "Solværskjær" on her way north. They started flushing the pump just as I took the picture.



                        Today "Fagervoll" passed by with 680 tons capelin on her way south.



                        "Ketlin" with 400 tons capelin a few minutes later.



                        Later this afternoon came "Trygvason" with 550 tons capelin.

                          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.
