    Forbundet KYSTEN Landsstevne 2017 - Kristiansund

    Forbundet KYSTEN (how should I translate that? The society of of people along our long coast who want to take care of our coastal heritage) is an organisation taking care of over 400 different old boats and ships.
    Each year they gather all the local societies for a national meeting, and in 2017 all this will take place in Kristiansund from 20th to 23rd July and Saturday will be the main day.
    (Note: On Saturday we also will have a cruise ship here, the CRYSTAL SYMPHONY). Anyone think I don't bother to charge my camera batteries...?
    They say there will be close to 200 boats in Kristiansund this week end.

    Anyway, some partisipants arrived today, among them the old steam boat THOROLF from Langevåg near Ålesund.
    The vessels visiting this week end will be moored from the Pier, in layers, all the way down Vågekaia and Nordmørskaia in the harbour and along excisting and new pontoons near Mellemværftet yard in Vågen, which will be the heart and brain of the meeting.

    Here are some of my 93 pictures from this days visit, the day before the day. Enjoy :-)

    D/S Thorolf, 60 feet long, built in 1910-11 in Rosendal. Sunk in the 1960s, raised and repaired later and taken over by a friend of the Thorolf society in 1988.
    Towed to Mellemværftet ant totally restored. Returned as a jewel to the friend society in 2000. Now the vessel is back, beautiful as ever.

            I deleted my post including the link to that harbor camera, since it could only be watched by subscribers to the local newspaper (it is their camera).

            About your question about HELAND, Ombugge..., yes, I see her name conected with pontoon G, although I haven't seen her myself.
            I heard yesterday that a few boats struggled against wind and heavy sea outside Bud, so she might be one of them.

              Ombugge asked about the M/K HELAND, and yes, she's here in Kristiansund. Talked to one of the guys on board yesterday and he told me the boat is kept in ship shape condition by a group of old men, about 15 in numbers. The guy also told me he thought much about the future, as the new members to the group is zero. They can't manage to recruit younger people, so what will happen with M/K Heland in 10-15 years, he could not say.

                Saturday there was the parade of fleet, where some of the partisipating boats pareded in front of the huge audience. I stood at the absolute front part of the Pier, as those of you who know Kristiansund purhaps can see. It's a pitty I can't give you sound via pictures.

                  (This is not an old whaler, what you could think from the barrel in the mast there, it's an old tuna fishing boat. If it was a whaler, the barrel would have had a black painted belt around it)

                    (This one was a gard vessel to Trondheimsfjorden for the German forces in WW2. Every boat wanting to sail into Trondheimsfjorden during the time the Germans used this vessel, had to report to Faxsen).

                    You can tell from the red lightning in the bow that this is built by Mjosundet ship yard just east of Kristiansund. The red lightning is their logo and were put on all their design boats before
