    Re: ::: Finnmarken :::

    Many great images here, and Carinas pictures might be worth a special mention.
    Now, is it only me or does she look really worn and torn so shortly after repaint?
    When looking at her appearance in Speedbirds images in post #666 there are brownish spots in the white all around, rusty marks running down from railings, black/sooty markings around windows and on the walls of the "over pool structure" and so on...
    Anyway, Sunday 26th I might have a look at this beauty myself as she's southbound in Kristiansund

      Errr - you don't seem to understand Ombugge! We ask the questions - you provide the answers!!

      Doesn't FM have azimuthing thrusters at the stern anyway which would make this even more surprising?

        Just at the moment of berthing there have been very strong gusts heading exactly to the quay.
        During my christmas tour with "Nordnorge" the anchor was user 2 times in simular situations. ( 1:44 in this video)

            Of course you can embed it in your blog, thanks a lot!
            Four years ago I used the Finnmarken to relocate from Germany to Norway, I put all my stuff in a van and sailed with her from Bergen to Tromsø. I really love this ship!

              Wonderful video and a perfect presentation of this unique ship. She is a very good evolution of all the Kong Harald to Nordnorge ships with a lot of good ideas. It is abolutely a wish of mine to sail on her one day. For me it is difficult to understand why they continiued with TF and MS in a different way. And you don't just need to compare the stern...

              Thank you for infecting me, arcticGateway!

                    Finnmarken have been sitting dead in the water for the past 2 years, according to this Norwegian article:

                      I think they have plenty of power at the stern, but Finnmarken and the rest of the 90' ships only have 2 bow thrusters and I think they are a bit underpowered? According to wikipedia Finnmarken has 2 X 1400 HP in the bow, on the other hand Midnatsol and Trollfjord have 3 x 1600 HP and these vessels are pretty much the exact same size.

                          I don't know, how much power is needed for a bow thruster, so it is hard to compare. Following the Hurtigruten policy to improve each new ship and include the proposals of the captains, they should have had the wish to have more power at the bow thruster. But i don't know if there are significant problems with the 2x1400HP. Anyone knows?

                          And look, there is Captain Kai Albrigtsen. He was our second captain during our Nordnorge trip in November...i am thinking about, if he was announcing that he is going to take over the command of Finnmarken, but i can't remember. We talked about the return, that's for sure..

                                Maybe, the original owners explain this difference ? OVDS for the Finnmarken and TFDS for the Midnatsol and Trollfjord ?
