    This one has appeared in several threads, but I think she deserves her own thread by now. Here are some background:
    She is a regular when a new cruise ship in town is leaving, or for festivals etc.

    Here she is arriving to attend the departure of MSC Preziosa on her first visit 20. May, 2017:

    Pakarang view:

    Steaming off in preparation for imminent departure:

    "Guns blazing":

    Returning from well accomplished assignment:

    Returning to base:

    She is now attending the Boat Festival in Aalesund. Seen here tied up at the Marina at Sjogata/Inner harbour, 11. July, 2017:

    Closer look:


      She has two stern anchors to keep position and distance when fighting fires ashore:

      And of course two bow anchors, which is required for any self-respecting vessel:

      The aft FiFi Gun:

      And the Hose Manifold (on each side):

      These are being maintained and working.


        Let us get below and look at the machinery, which is still original.
        Here the two main engines, driving the propellers:

        Two identical engines are driving the FiFi pumps:

        Now up to the wheelhouse.
        The manoeuvre position:

        The Chart table and VHF Radio:

        The windows are of the good old fashion type that none of the younger generation would have seen before:


          She does have a MOB boat, but maybe not of the approved type:

          A closer look at the aft FiFi gun:

          And the Fwrd. FiFi gun:

          Nostalgia: I used to have the crew on Brannsproyta as my regular customers when I was selling Sunnmorsposten back in the time when she was new and shiny.
          She was moored at Brøggerplana, next to where Hessaferga also had her mooring pontoon.

            She's charming. Great pics, and a chance to see onboard.

          Cute - and rather unusual. Good piccies in the sun too.

            Yes it does happen once in awhile. (Both the sun and good pictures)

          I have seen this vessel many times but NEVER seen anything from on board! Thank you so much for taking all of us along with you - through your camera!
