      The man who fell into Lofotens cargohold was the ships electrician.
      The electrician fell 4-5 meters head first, so for the crew it looked very dramatic.
      But thankfully today the captain, Brynjard Ulvøy , stated that the electrician was released from the hospital without serious injuries

        Ettersom skipets egen kran var ute av drift ble det vurdert dithen at det beste var å gå videre til Sortland, for der å bruke mobilkran og spesialbåra til Kystvakta.
        This news article (from 11.10.2010) says that Lofotens crane is out of order. Wasn't the crane fixed at Fiskerstrand Verft couple of weeks ago?

          Friends are on board Lofoten and they wrote the crane was working yesterday. I hope Lazybird will find some time to post photos from the removal.

          Here is a photo from the damaged quay in Berlevåg. No chance for me to solve Ralfs puzzle. In March 2007 I came on board in Tromsø northbound and I was sleeping while we are passing Finnsnes southbound. And no, Lofoten didn't crash towards the quayside.

              In June we had a discussion about the owners suite. Ralf was right, there is a window in the door. In August I remember it and here is the proof:

                A bit confused to which deck this is. Do remember that a few years ago they changed the names of the decks on LO and NX. Somewhere in my boxes (after moving) I may have prints of the old deck designations. Could be on today's deck B.

                Earlier in this thread Eilun posted a deck plan different from today's, which I believe shows this cabin, marked in red.

                Anyways, this reminds me of the door of the post office of old times. Remember that last times I sailed on the Hurtigruten in the late 60'ies the door was always open and one could watch the postal clerc at work sorting the mail in there, between ports.

                Someone here surely must know the year the postal service was terminated onboard?

                  Eilun, I was trying to make out what the oval brass plaque above the window says – perhaps you can read it on your full-resolution original?

                    It says; 'REDER" = Owner. Reder Lugar = Owner's Cabin.

                      According to my knowledge of Lofoten, the Reder-cabin must be the one I have marked with a cross on the deck plan (taken fresh from Hurtigrutens website). This corresponds with the location of the former post office, I think?

                        Om bord jobbet det ca 60 personer, hvorav halvparten jobber i restaurasjonen. Hun fraktet også post, derfor hadde hun ett postkontor vedsiden av resepsjonen på dekk A. Om bord jobbet det også postfunksjonærene som tok seg av sortering av post, som kom ombord, og som skulle sendes i land.
                        Google Translate did a rather poor job of transpating this, so here's my improved(?) version (uncertainties color coded):

                        "About 60 people worked on board, half of whom were in catering/maintenence. As Harald Jarl carried the mail, she had a Post Office, situated forward of Reception on A-Deck. Post officials worked on board taking care of the sorting of the mail but also its receipt and delivery at the ports."

                          Nyttårsaften 1983 ble postkontoret om bord i Harald Jarl, og de andre hurtigruteskipene nedlagt, som de siste postkontor til sjøs. For Harald Jarl`s del medførte dette at postrommet ble revet ut, og det ble bygget en stor passasjerlugar. Lugarene som tidligere tilhørte postfunksjonærene, ble omgjort til mannskapslugarer.
                          "On New Year's Eve 1983, the post office on board Harald Jarl, and other coastal vessels closed, as the last post office at sea. For Harald Jarl's part meant that the post office was torn out, and a large passenger cabin built in its place. Cabins previously dedicated to the mail officials, were subsequently used as crew cabins.

                          Går vi lenger fram ved rekka på A dekket kommer vi midtskips, her er ei dør inn til sykelugaren, og ei dør i midten inn til hallen vedsiden av billettkontoret. På andre siden av billettkontoret er stuert lugaren. Litt lenger fram, forbi trappene ned til B og C dekket, på babord siden ligger lugar 6 og 1 som var postrom helt inntil 1983 da dette ble avviklet, ble disse ombygget til passasjerlugarer. ...
                          "If we go further ahead of the rail amidships on A-deck, we find a door to the sick-bay, and a door in the middle of the hall, by the ticket office. On the other side of the ticket office is the Steward's cabin. A little farther, past the stairs down to the B- and C-deck on the port side, we pass cabins No. 6 and 1, which was the Post Office until 1983 when it was discontinued and the space converted to passenger cabins. ...
