                  One of my really old pen-drawings dated from as far back as 1989 showing the Lofoten and Vesterålen side by side: Lofoten with blue hull, which she sported one full year back in the 80's:

                      Absolutely agree with you on that.
                      Is it only me,but I wonder why they have the gangway open under sailing.

                        I noticed that as well... I thought that since it was one of the first postcards to ever come out of this ship, it could possibly have been taken at a sea trial maybe... certainly, it wouldn't be good in normal run.

                        Naturally, it could also be due to maintenance of hydraulics or simply painting of some hard to reach areas....

                              Makes me think of the ship in any of the "King Kong" movies as they get closer and closer to "the island"----

                              Fog has always fascinated me...I love it (although I know you sailors must hate the stuff...)
