          Yep, Mark. I thought I'd put a trailer on here for the rest of the photos on my W.W. thread, coming soon!

            Look forward to that - have really been enjoying the London photos so far. Doesn't the Cutty Sark look wonderful!

              Here is the veteran Fishing Vessel Hindholmen heading towards Aalesund today:

              She looks like a toy in this picture, but I can assure you she is anything but.

              For those who want to know more, here is a link to the website for Hindholmen: http://www.mshindholmen.no/Galleri/1913

                In post #47, 'ombugge' tried to make the sound of a Volda semidiesel engine.
                Personally I could "hear" it, because I've heared it in real life before, but for anyone wondering what the 'dunk-dunk-dunk' sounds like...., here's a guy cranking up his model 1949 Volda semidiesel 22 horsepower engine (on the back of an old military GMC truck).
                Note: I don't know how many HP there was in the engine of 'ombugge's pictured boat though...



                YouTube is filled with Volda semidiesels and other engine sounds.

                  Here is the real thing: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0j4amiDd-IY
                  This from when the Skoghaug was still used for fishing.

                      Some old images from Svalbard I found in old photo albums from one in the family.

                      This ships belonged to Jacob Kjøde's shipping company in Bergen except of "Binny" who belonged to Sophus Schanck Shipping company in Bergen.

                      This picture shows "Binny" as the first ship in spring of 1966.
                      The date is 27/5 and local time was 20:30

                      "Binny" moored at the pier.

                            "Nordsyssel" was used for many years on Svalbard.
                            She was sold to people in Tromsø 1977/78 and renamed "Ice Lady"

                            She was used in the fisheries inspectorate as a guard ship.
                            Sadly she was wrecked at Hekkingen Lighthouse january 15 1980.
                            4 people died and one survived this ship accident.

                                Wow Bengt - such an outstanding quality of pictures!
                                I find it also very interesting not to see only the ships, but also the surroundings and quays. Love those beetles with painted on license plates.
