    That's true. They were called Ship mechanics and was the result of an effort to try to rationalise the amount of crewmembers and to keep norwegian seamen.

      Thanks Shoe, it's good to learn new terms. Please forgive me should I need to ask again in the future.

            I think the only cam we may possibly spot her, is at this one... at least, I haven't been able to find any other cams:

                    The website faktaomfartyg has way more International support than us, they have even managed to already receive three good shots of her in Cape Town:

                        Nope, the text says Kapstaden which is another name of Cape Town, South Africa.

                            Do you happen to know, is Boskalis represented on board during the transit?

                              Any update from our beloved Finnmarken: has she reached her destination and how has the voyage been?

                              I hope and wish that the new crew on her are enjoying her facilities and that they are happy with the ship. SHe is a true gem of a ship and well constructed.

                              Would love to hear and see how she is doing. Always exiting to see images of a ship we know so well in other more exotic areas of the world.
