        Another veteran that is still active seen leaving Stavanger a few days ago:






        Looks like the original hull at least is old, probably an old Whale Catcher that has been converted several times.

          "Kongsnes" is used as a training vessel for safety courses for fishermen etc. along the coast, and belong to Kongsøy Group AS in Tromsø.

          She was originally built in Holland in the Dageraad L/R Boot J in 1955 as the "Alberta Hendrika"

          From 1965 - 1991 "Ryving" belonged to a shipping company on Karmøy.

          As the pictures shows, it has made ​​a lot of conversions over the years.
          See the links for previous photos of the boat.

              Wonderful pictures. How did you manage to get those old-fashioned colours on these pictures. They look like old post cards from the 60ies.
              Was it the light this day or did you something special with your settings?

                Nothing fancy actually... I had the white balance set to daylight, and I was using a circular polarizer, which might have contributed to those colors. I also ran some color correction in Photo Shop. Thinking about it, I might have left the color balance on "vivid" in stead of the "natural" I usually have...

                              'Lysglimt' is a very proportioned fishing vessel, great image angles too!

                                This "SANDNES" is indeed a beautiful ship.

                                I remember her when she was a schoolship "Sjøkurs" in Kristiansand.

                                This reuse, and Inheritence order of ships is very interesting.

                                After the Nattruten sercice "Sandnes" became Gann. When Gann bought the former Hurtigture "Ragnvald Jarl" as new Gann, Sandnes was sold to Sjøkurs. The old SJØKURS, wich actually was the former hurtigrute Salten, was sold as Vetaran Ship to Stavanger.

                                A few years later this inheritance order and reuse of ships rolled over again. Gann bought the former hurtigrute Narvik as new Gann. Than Gann sold Ragnvald Jarl to Sjøkurs in Kristiansand
                                And the old Sjøkurs, wich now was Sandnes, was sold as veteran ship to Stavanger. And the vetaran "Gamle Salten", already as veteran in Stavanger, was sold and came home to Bodø.

                                I LOOOOOOVE this story, and the chain of ship-reuse.
