      All welded hull and built 1911???

    If you have about and hour free, nearly nothing to do, and love old classical ocean liners, this might be a very good film to see:

      PS: I've seen all three episodes of this film, a total of three hours. Excellent material indeed... a lot of the fine classics from my childhood brought back a lot of great memories.

      In the first episode, or was it second episode(?), they even showed the ship above all ships... the SS FRANCE and the SS NORWAY!

      Go check the films out on youtube!

        Some more veteran boats seen in Aalesund lately.
        This one looks like a work in progress:




        Not sure if this is a true veteran or a replica, but looks in very good state of repair:

          A very familiar veteran boat for those who grew up in Aalesund in the 1950-70's:






          This is the former Ambulance boat Samaritan which played a major role for the safety of people on the outlying islands and small villages along the fjords.

          There was another boat of the same type. She was the Svint and used to belong to Sunnmorsposten. She was used to carry their reporter to wherever there were anything interesting and newsworthy happening in the district. She appeared in this thread at post # 24 back in 2011

          Both boats were skippered by two brothers Alvik from Slinningen and their regular mooring was at Slinningsholmen, where Slinningsbaalet has been burnt every year.
          .

            Beautiful vessel in your last post. Those all-wooden boats are rare these days. This one really looks well maintained.

            My uncle and aunt which lived at Sundalsøra, used to have an all-wooden cabin cruises in my childhood, it was one of the biggest one's in that place. I remember it very well, and I have always wondered where it ended up after it was sold, and whether it is still in "active" use.

              More veterans seen in Aalesund. Here is a well maintained old fishing boat registered in Borgund and still home ported in Sula:




              Parat III heading out on an excurtion trip:


              Ex whaler Rover alongside selling whale meat hunted by others:


              I especially noticed the radio direction finder antenna on to of the mizzen mast:

              Not many of those to be seen anymore. The Owner told me it was kept because the boat was on the protected register.

                Veteran ship SUNNHORDLAND sailed into Kristiansund tonight. Below my radar, but a friend sent a message, so I grabbed my Pentax and drove to town. It's a beauty.

                    You didn't mention that he is one of the PEC/KIL class vessels that was converted to ferries in Norway. (Much discussed earlier on CVF)

                    No, I did not. Tried to find a thread to put my pictures in, but there was only one for PEC 833, and this being PEC 830, I felt it would be wrong to put them there.
                    SUNNHORDLANDs (or USS PEC 833, HMS Likchrenan, MS Kristina Brahe and MS Brahe) history is so long and has so many details from her being built at Pullman Standard Car Mfg., Chicago IL, USA in 1943, I figured members in here could Google her history if they wanted to know her background.

                  By the way; SPOTTER ALERT! SUNNHORDLAND is on her way to Trondheim, turning Agdenes light house as I write (8:05 AM)

                  Update: She arrived Trondheim, but moored on a difficult spot for those of you who might want to take her picture. She's moored in Ilabassenget, right outside Olje- og Energisenteret Trondheim, (and, might I add, Norsk Fotofagskole (Norwegian School of Photography)).
                  I mention that in particular, as my daughter start her two years journey to become a pro-photographer there today :-)

                    Coming from a night watch, I saw something I hadn't seen before docked at Ila. My couriousity got hold of me and I investigated.

                    Sunnhordaland was indeed docked at a difficult place for any good pictures, and magnetic disturbances at Ila makes it a very bad place to fly birdie Seagull.

                    I however got some pictures too, that I will try to have posted in the next couple of days.

                          Not a veteran ship or boat, just a veteran semi-diesel keeping the beat:
