                There Is apparently a group of Netizens in Japan that like to google translate from Japanese to English and back again to Japanese. The result is apparently hillarious.
                Maybe the same will apply to Norwegian/English/Norwegian??? (Or any other two languages)
                Could this become a new CVF thread???

                  Now the new owners are searching for investors: http://www.bt.no/bergenpuls/Soker-in...n-2796089.html

                  It also says this:
                  It is not the acctual steamship company (Indre Nordhordland Dampbåtlag) that have signed the contract and paid the deposit to Hurtigruten ASA. It is a shipping company that belongs to the same owner constellation. A company from Karmøy (Vestland Rederi). 80 percent of this company is owned by Grand Ocean Shipping Company Ltd, registered in Gibraltar, with an adress in Poland, and also owns 100 percent of Indre Nordhordland Dampbåtlag. In addition, the Grand Ocean Shipping Company owns Vestland Marine, a shipping company also based in Poland, controlled by Jarle Rasmussen, who also established the Karmøy-company, Vestland Rederi, and is the director of Indre Nordhordland Dampbåtlag.

                  Jarle Rasmussen, a native of Sauda in Norway, have emigrated to Poland. Rasmussens Company also leases the shipyard where the steamboat MS "Bruvik" has been in over three years.

                  Ownership hidden

                  - Who owns the Grand Ocean Shipping?
                  - It is a foreign company, and I will not say anything about who owns it.

                  In the registers of Gibraltar the real ownership is hidden behind a law firm called Attlev Management Company. This company is listed as the owner of the entire share capital of 100 pounds.


                  Thank GOD that Nordstjernen got protected this fast.. I get a little worried Hopefully I have no reason to. Time will tell.

                    New ownership sounds terribly complicated, but that seems to be the standard nowadays...

                      Thank you Carina, for pointing that out. We will have to watch that very detailed to see what will turn out.
                      And thank you also, J-O for all these teriffic pictures!! That is a nice good-bye, at least until we know what is going to happen with her.

                        Dear friend and Captain, Jan-Olav :

                        What a perfect timing posting your fantastic Nordstjernen picture-serie.


                        I have looked at your images over and over again the last week. And all your "goodbye"-pictures is a wonderful and emotional TESTAMENT of this beautuful old Lady.

                        THANK YOU Nordstjernen .------ for your long and faithful life. And for many memorable trips and moments...

                        And THANK YOU Jan-Olav ------ for all your fantastic images

                          If I have understood this right, with the protection granted the vessel cannot leave Norway, except for docking or upgrading. (Is that how it works???)

                          There is little possibilities that Nordstjernen will ever be used in International passenger trade, as that would require compliance with SOLAS 2010.
                          Coastal trade within Norway, incl. Svalbard, is therefore the most likely scenario.

                          If she end up as a a Stationary, or Semi-stationary vessel, only moving between locations without passengers, could she sail to anywhere in the world, as long as she is owned by a Norwegian entity?

                          In any case, the only way to conserve the ship 100% in the original style would be as a stationary museum piece, and nobody would want that, I think?

                            Perhaps this has been posted before, but there is apparently some issues with the funding of the ship:

                            http://www.bt.no/bergenpuls/Soker-in...n-2796089.html

                            They are still seeking partners to run the ship, economically.

                              I hope it's the perfect time to continue with a batch of additional images. Well, it's a rhetorical question....
