    Thank you so much, I totally agree with you... such a nice looking vessel deserves to be kept in the spotlight!

        I agree, DS Torolf deserves to be kept in the spotlight.
        I found her a few places in my collection of images taken from smp.no webcam to revive this thread.

        Here she is turning in Brosundet (Aalesundet):

        Anybody have some recent sharp and close-up pics of this boat?

          What strikes me when seeing images of old vessels like this, is how large they appear in the old black and white photograph, and in a new recent image, she/they appear quite tiny!

          Where is this vessel normally stationed in Norway?

            I believe she is still stationed in Langevaag. She originally belonged to O.A.Devold in Langevaag and I think the group of people who look after here now is mostly from there.

                      Yesterday we took a short "cruise" from Aalesund to Langevaag on Sula by this replacement for "Langevaagsbaaten":


                      Now for the Torolf, seen at it's regular place:

                      The entrance to the Engine Room must have been hard for a 6-footer:


                      A quick look into the Wheelhouse:

                          She is a very handsome vessel indeed: I have seen her myself a couple of times, in various fjords, but all those times, she was at a dock.
