      A good old movie of the Erling Jarl: reminds me of the old movies we used to watch in the school when I was a young boy...

        I made a quick search for Erling Jarl on Google and Flickr; and these pictures (old postcards, apparently) are among those I found:

          I sometimes sit and think that if I was a Donald Trump - like millionaire, I would build a brand new Erling Jarl replica ship.

          These ships are so beautiful: well proportioned and really of the good old class of ships. Sad that none of these ships survived.

            Hello friends....

            Most of you fellow Hurtigruten-affenciados out there know of the German Hurtigruten website ( http://www.norwegische-postschiffe.de/ )....

            I browsed the site again yesterday, and came across an image of the good old Erling Jarl: a winter image...

            Studying the image, I notice that several of the "windows" have been blinded off with ply wood, in the forward lounge and even at the bridge... she must have been out in heavy weather when the image was taken.

              Good observation. In my opinion this must have been on her last roundtrip. The photographer took two pictures at the 3rd of March 1980 in Trondheim and some days later this picture was taken northbound to Kirkenes. At the 13th of March 1980 she ran aground at Brattholmen Lykt, Steinsund, Soland. This was her end in Hurtigruten.

                  I will list up all accidents of "Earling Jarl", as far as i know:

                  In March 1950, ran aground in Toppsund.
                  In January 1952, ran aground outside the harbour of Vardø.
                  In November 1955, ran aground outside of Svolvær.
                  At 08th of January 1958 fire aboard. The ship was moored in Bodø. 14 people died. After the fire the regulations for fire protection became more severe.
                  In March 1964 collision between M/S Erling Jarl (NFDS) with the fish trawler "Nordfalk"
                  At 08th of February 1971 M/S Erling Jarl ran aground in Risøyrenna.
                  At 20th of November 1971 M/S Erling Jarl ran aground near Ørland.
                  At 17th of August 1972 M/S Erling Jarl ran aground in Raftsund. Passengers were evacuated to Elieser and Strønstad and transferred to Svolvær. The tugboat Sterkodder pulled the vessel free and to Harstad for reparation. No big damage. The vessel is 3 days later back in Hurtigrute. The picture must be from this incident.
                  At 03rd of February 1973 M/S Erling Jarl ran aground while leaving the harbour of Florø.
                  At 17th of February 1976 M/S Erling Jarl (NFDS) ran aground at Stamsund.
                  1977 M/S Erling Jarl (NFDS) ran aground in Raftsund.
                  At 22nd of December 1978 Collision with the kay in Risøyhamn. Provisional repair.
                  At 13th of March 1980, at 02.30 in the night, M/S Erling Jarl (NFDS) ran aground Brattholmen Lykt, Steinsund, Sortland.
                  It was decided that the repair is too expensive. Floating hotel for four years in Trondheim, after that scrapped.

                    Thank you so much Ralf....

                    The sad thing is that I do not remember her as a hotel ship in Trondheim during my childhood at all... I don't think I even knew about Huritgruten before I moved to Rørvik in the mid-80s.

                      Tank you Ralf

                      Do you have more information about this incident in Raftsundet? Why it happend?
                      Also, if someone have more information about the other accidents, I would appreciate if you share

                      This might be a bit stupid of me, but I find accidents like these to be very interesting reading. It might be because accidents like these are something we all fear when traveling up and down the coast, and all around the world.

                        I found the following in a magazine called OHRV-nytt: http://www.ohrv.net/medlem/medlemsbl...tt__4_2003.pdf

                        Sorry, only in Norwegian, but Google translator may do it justice.

                        I 1971 var det og et uhell. Båten rente på grunn i Risøyrenna den 8. Februar. Året etter den 17.August, gikk den solid på grunn i Raftsundet.
                        Senere fikk hun også en skikkelig smell ved Ørlandet, mens den siste spikeren (før hun ble spiker selv) ble slått inn da hun for nordgående den 13. Mars 1980 klokken 0230 i mørke og tette snøbyger med 46 passasjerer om bord prøvde å
                        dele Brattholmen i Ytre Steinsund i Solund i to.
                        Overstyrmann John Johnsen og en losaspirant var på vakt.
                        Har forresten aldri skjønt hvorfor leia går gjennom den steinrøysa, når man kan bruke det mye reinere Krakhellesundet, går parallelt, men en smule lenger øst i Sognefjorden. Litt lenger distanse, men tryggere.
                        Many more articles and pictures about hurtigruten in this magazine.

                          pakarang: The sad thing is that I do not remember her as a hotel ship in Trondheim during my childhood at all...

                          As far as I remember, the ship was moored in Nidelva, to the berth just downstream of Royal Garden Hotel.
                          The hotel was under construction, opened in 1984.

                            Somewhere close to where the fireboat is now moored?

                            Strangely also, I have never come across an image of her moored there.... maybe I could ask Adresseravisen?

                              I have no more information about these accidents, maybe the members, which have a lot of books about Hurtigruten will know more...
                              For me it is astonishing that especially Erling Jarl touched the ground so often...
                              They did it all, but not so frequently...
