  • The Scillonian - I heard the same story from my girl friend. Everyone was seasick on board, only she loved it. So it is sure you travelled not together on the Scillonian.
    My girl friend lived one year in Penzance, now she is an English teacher here in Germany. In October 2005 she sailed to Penzance on Elbe 1, an old lightship, built 1948. Some people thought it is an crazy idea sailing in autumn such a long distance with this old ship.
    Sad, there is no hope to convince her writing reports about it. She don't like Computers...

      Now that is too good an experience to miss hearing about, Eilun. Please try to persuade her to write an account on a typewriter and then perhaps you could scan it in and bring it to CV? I don't ask for much, do I? But I'm sure it would be interesting to read.

      • A report about this journey is existing, but only in German, sorry. But maybe you like the photos - I added a link in Veteran Ships.

        Back to Harald Jarl/Andrea:
        A turn without bow thruster in Kristiansund, the ship groaned.

        • A turn without bow thruster in Kristiansund, the ship groaned.
          Why would she dock like this? Normally she would dock with her bow to the left (of this picture), wihtout having to turn like this...?? This must be an irregular docking?

          • I think this might be a departure, rather than docking.

            When they heave in the stern-line, the bow will be pulled away from the pier, as a bow thruster would have pushed her.

            • Yes, this is most certainly a departure.
              But why is that "smart" guy from the harbour authorities (who should know what he was doing) standing right there....? What if the rope snapped...? I could clearly see before me that he wouldn't be home for dinner that day...

              (I don't care if the tention are increasing or decreasing on that rope, as I belive that you should have great respect for any rope used to maneuver a huge vessel).

              • Agree... if you want to be on the safe side of things, that would not be one of the smartest places to stand.

                • Yes, it was the departure in Kristiansund and I can calm you down - the guy near the line survived and I think he was at home for dinner.

                          • Harald Jarl still in arrest, now laid up in Vranjic, near Split. She does look good though, even in this recent photo:

                              Sadly, Google Earth hasn't been updated since 2003, so she is not there.
