    Thanks for that Polar - interesting.
    Cheers,

      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 ?

              Finnmarken is getting the Hurtigruten-logo font painted on the hull in Bergen tonight..
              Someone posted photos on facebook while they worked on it

                Finnmarken here tonight. They were northbound, and took an unusual route in to the harbour, going east of the irland called Hagbaren. (in the background in the first photo.) This is the lane the southbound arrives in.











                She only has "Hurtigruten" on the hull on the port side so far...

                There's more pictures from tonight on my page. (hurtigruten-web.com/finnmarken)

                  And I think the photographer also found a unusual spot to stand on? Great place for photos by the way!
                  I always have thought about how Finnmarken would look like with one more deck painted in black?

                    Re: ::: Finnmarken :::

                    I think another deck in black could work..? Maybe..
                    I was thinking for several hours before I left home, where I could go to take my photos today, cause I'm so tierd of the usual perspectives. And I've only been at this spot one time earlier, when it was dark, so that's where I ended up today, which worked perfectly today with daylight and all

                      Do you mean black and white, Tommi. Without the red deck?????? Or do you think about the restaurant-deck in red?

                        Would be great to see an image or rendering of Finnmarken without the red band, with the black up to the top of the red line, OR, to see the red band one deck higher.

                        PS: Absolutely spectacular images Carina...! Awesome!

                          She would look like a fat guy with the pants held up above his belly by suspender. (Close you eyes and imagine)

                          PS> Without the red band she would look like a "sagger". She is best a she is now.

                            Please excuse the poor quality, i made just some very rough stretches in Carinas pictures to give some imagination...

                            the stern




                            and the profile




                            ...personally i tend to agree to Ombugges opinion...

                              haha look at that!

                              Yeah she looks best as she is, of course, but I don't think it would look bad with the red belt one deck higher. It's a lot of white on this ship..
                              But I never noticed or thought about that before it was mentioned here

                                There can be quite many variations of this theme. One could be the TF/MS "arrow style" red stripe. Or the all black old style theme with the black area going higher on the bow.

                                Tonights interpretion:

                                I hope you don't mind borrowing your picture Carina?
