    Re: Veteran Ships and Boats (General)

    Thanks so much for the comments from both of you.

    Pretty exciting to flip through old albums that have been stored away for many years.
    I have to look through a few more albums to see if there might be something more of interest.
    Best wishes from
    Bengt Domben

          It is very remiss of me but I have neglected to show photos of two sail ships that I have seen recently and that certainly deserve places on this thread. I have given details and many photos elsewhere.


          This is, of course, the clipper Cutty Sark. See http://www.captainsvoyage-forum.com/...636#post107636 et seq.

          and later the Albatros:

                Excelsior


                A Lowestoft fishing smack built 1921 and newly restored. She is one of the National Core Collection of Historic Ships.
                See http://www.excelsiortrust.co.uk/modu...php?storyid=26 and http://www.excelsiortrust.co.uk/

                I'll go into Lowestoft again and look over her.

                  During our stopover in Oslo we visited the Maritime Museum at Bygdoy, which was a bit of a disappointment, since they were changing exhibits and most of it was closed off.

                  There were a few models that attracted my attention, however.

                  This one should not need any presentation:


                  Nor this one. Presented here as an antidote against nostalgia:


                  This one have special interest for me, since it was my first ship, back in 1959:


                  But this one may not be as well known:


                  Very famous at at one time, but her history is probably largely forgotten now. Here is a link for those who gets curious: http://www.warsailors.com/singleships/lidvard.html

                  Surprisingly a model of the next ship with the same name was also exhibited, a tanker.
                  The Owners later became the first Norwegian Cruise Company, Kloster.

                    That SS Norway model is my absolutely highest wish - imagine having that one in my living room - or in my bath tub!

                      You would need a large bath tub, but why not aspire for a swimming pool??

                        Remember this one:


                        Here she is at the same place, but now in winter mode:

                              yesterday i went shipspotting again.
                              not a vessel where i would come out of my bed for, about her size,just 86 meters.
                              but it's a old vessel,so old lines.
                              not much fun for spotting this one,she is small,so she can sail fast through the Noordzeekanaal.
                              so i had a deu javu moment yesterday,a few days back i was racing also,to keep up with a Seat.
                              normaly it wil take some time from point to point for the vessels,now i was racing, get out of the car, a few qiuck shots,and race to the next spot.

                              but here she is,''Serenissima'',far at sea,zoomed in with the lens,and later at the computer, and noticed there that the pilotvessel was beside her.



                              busy at the entrance.
