    Well, It wasn't finding a new nick-name I wanted him to help me with, but it was changing the name and I think only the admin. or the moderators can do that? Or can I fix it myself? My Ideas would be The Sea-Otter,The Seagull1996,The Osprey or The Kangaroo

    Back to topic, when and why was Lofoten's crane removed?

      Hi Kristian, from you-know-who (!!!) Well I must admit I do keep seeing Seagull out of the corner of my eye against many a post or thread, and find myself thinking “I don’t remember writing that”!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      But it is VERY sweet of you to even think about changing name.

      Though for just a second or so after you joined us I even contemplated doing so myself …. Captain often calls me Lady C which would be the most obvious alternative, but then what would I do for an avatar… and I’d miss that wooden seagull on what has become a tradition in the birthday thread (see Crew Manifest)…and, most of all, there are probably hundreds of references to seagulls in connection with me after thousands of posts!!! So I’d probably best stay as I am or there would be even more confusion! It is in any case an actual nickname since childhood.

      Yes, I think only our administrator could change a name. You could always send a PM to Administrator with your name choice for when he has a free moment (you’ll have realised he isn’t around just now with all the exciting changes on the ferries). But please, don’t even think of changing if The Seagull is special to you, like your name in other forums or the name of a ship or boat of yours or anything like that.

      Ummm, Sea-otter and Osprey sound nice, but kangaroo?…see, you’ve got me curious!….This thread in Crew Manifest about member names makes rather an interesting read.

      Back on Lofoten topic on this thread, I see that back in post #334, Sterkoder mentioned “problems with rust/corrosion), but I need to read through again to pinpoint the dates.

        Kristian,

        Something crazy just came into my head and now, whatever you choose, I will always think of you as "Sea Kangaroo".

          Great images by all here!

          Fantastic winter-December photo by Helgeland/ Joakim as well!

          PS: The Seagull: Send me a PM and let me know which "new name" you'd like to go for... it's really easy to change it!

              I know of Tree Kangroo but Sea Kangaroo is a new one to me. Nice and unique as a nick though.

                A "pepperkakebåter" thread in the Norsk Skipsfartsforum motivated me....



                Please don't laugh about it, first my planning was a little bit more detailed. I had some problems with the construction so it is not exactly the original.
                Today I added the ship's bell, stolen from a chocolate Santa Claus.



                I am not sure - what shall I do with my Pepperkakerute after Christmas? Eat Lofoten up?
                I think I will melt a lot of chocolate and give it a chance to swim.

                  I think your Lofoten just delightful. My goodness, you have put some work into it - it must have taken ages with all that detail, Eilun. I suppose you will have to eat it in the end, but if so, send me a little piece of the stern with the flag on it, will you please? Then after I've mopped up the crumbs and licked the choc. off my fingers I can stick the flag onto my laptop for when I tune in to CVF! Bravo!

                    How beautiful model is that... I can come and help you eat Lofoten?

                    I toyed with the idea of making a GINGER BREAD version of Korsfjord, but the thought of burning myself on hot sugar made me cancel the plans.

                      If you will visit me this month, you can help to eat it. I hope nobody believe in voodoo?
                      Dangerous hot sugar? This is not a good excuse! I am waiting for the gingerbread Korsfjord next Christmas.

                      I ordered an old magazine (European ferryscene and cruise ship review) from Summer 2009. Not sure, if it was mentioned before. Nothing new in the report about Hurtigruten, but a nice photo from Lofoten at the front page. Inside are also photos from Finnmarken, Trollfjord, Vesterålen and Nordstjernen.

                          Great picture of "Lofoten" just before arriving Bergen in gray weather.

                            …and I had posted it just before you and pakarang were chatting in the Tromsø thread saying how nice and cheering it is to look at summer photos at this time of year!!!
                            When I’m in Bergen I always feel like going to this café and watch the hurtigrute arrive, whatever the weather. Although Bergen has a reputation for rain, it is actually where I took this very summer photo once….the café is where you see the blue sunshade on that photo (below the Norwegian flag) beyond the apartments.

                              Great moment in time, a wonderful brochure quality image.
