      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.
