      Nice touch, Eilun!!!

      Is it for everyone to climb up on the bridge roof of "Sjøkurs" to take pictures..?

      EDIT: Well, I see my last comment here is not so impressive any more, having seen your roof pictures in another thread....

            I like the way Finnmarken shows off her bulbous bow when she's not under way.



            If you are into Naval Architecture (I have been on the fringes of it during my working life), bulbous bows are very interesting and worth reading about:

              I heard tales that Finnmarken might be heading to Australia as hotel ship for 18 months.... does anyone have any information on that?

              Where in Australia, and in connection with what event does she have the opportunity to land such an extensive contract?

                There are several major Gas Fields under development/planned in Western Australia and off Northern Territories, which involve onshore processing plants.
                The newest announcement is that Chevron will develop the Gorgon Field with a two-train Gas Liquefication Plant at Barrow Island, WA. This project alone will have several thousand workers during the construction period. Maybe as many as 10,000 jobs, incl. the various associated services.
                (Similar in scope to the Melkoya and Nyhavna projects, only bigger)

                If so, that means she will have to be fully manned by unionized Australian seamen for the duration. Not a good prospect for her maintenance and upkeep.

                  Thank you very much for the quick reply.... You've got a good point there, if the need is so large for berths, the ship would provide some relief to the situation as hotel vessel.

                  What about the QE2.... she could provide a lot of beds, in addition to many other old liners... as opposed to going to the beach of doom.

                      That's a nice stateroom, as opposed to those inside propeller suites on the old ships...

                          See what you say, understand it very well and it's correct, but....:

                          As long as we post pictures here, we always run the risk of being copied. That's why I always scale down my images so that they become useless in commercial printing (not newspapers, as they print whatever scale they can find, not bothering with quality).

                          This time I belive 'Clipper' just used your picture as an illustration to his posting about bulbous bows, and I might use a picture from a fellow CV member in this way myself. I'd ask first of cource, but I don't belive I will ever get a NO from anybody in here.

                          Then you have the newspapers. If you find any of your pictures used to illustrate an article there, you can contact the paper/journalist and tell them you took the picture, refer to the copyright in the norwegian 'Åndsverksloven' and tell them to pay NOK 1.530,- for this one time use (That's the price everybody in this business use, and it's the price for one times use in a newspaper according to the Freelancesatsene http://www.nj.no/Frilanssatsene.b7C_xdnYZY.ips

                          So, Joakim..., give 'Clipper' here some slack, and be honored he used your picture when among friends at CaptainsVoyage

                          Nice picture by the way!!

                            I am sorry.

                            I would not intentionally offend you or anyone else here on CV, the friendliest forum I know. CV is a leisure activity and I do not come here to offend people or to get into a fight.

                            My intention in cropping your photo was to better frame the ship and I concede that I carelessly made a casualty of your name in doing so.

                            For what it's worth: If you want to protect your images and have the weight of law behind you then, as I understand it, you must do more than imprint a name; you must use the copyright symbol and (the bit that is often forgotten) the year at which the copyright is claimed. The reason for the date, again as I understand, is because copyright is a time-limited protection. The date states the date at which the clock starts ticking and owners can't simply adjust the date upwards each time a work is published. And even if you get this right, there's still no guarantee that a court will uphold an infringement claim because there can be other considerations - for example some courts have ruled that some 'skill, labour and judgment' must have gone into the work for it to qualify for copyright protection. Such judgements, again as I understand it, vary from country to country. I tell you this so you can better protect your images.

                            But the main message is that I am sorry, and I am sorry because you clearly feel hurt by my actions.

                            If you ask, then I will add an attribution to you or delete my post, whatever you choose.

                                Joakim,

                                Thank you for your understanding and acceptance of my apology.

                                I have added an attribution to you and an apology in my post, and I will certainly ask before reposting someone else's photo in the future.
