        A bit unusual design indeed. I like the looks of the 'Stabil', it had great proportions.

          (it goes about this one)

          This looks like former Hessaferga "Aspoy" that was sold in 1952 or 1953 I believe.

            More about Aspøy here: http://www.dshvaler.no/Informasjonsb...d%202008-2.pdf unfortunately only in Norwegian.

            Aspøy ca.1925


            Aspøy was during the annual maintenance in 1978 so damaged by a fire that the boat was scraped. It was than owned by Haugen, Heran in Hardanger

            Off topic? Yes, but......

              I don't want to be rude or something, but STABIL came from Sandefjord in 1936 and looked like this:



              After rebuilding, looking like in the image in post #1070, it became a vital part in the evacuation of Kristiansund in the initial war days in April 1940.

              The use of the word 'rude' in line one here, refer to the fact that I personally don't think it look like the old ASPOY at all.

                  Back to the boat trip from a few days back.

                  At Krimek was carferry BJØRNSUND


                  At the same yard, TRØNDERHAV was on the slipway and up for maintenance


                  Tug WATERMAN


                  Line of "steam irons"


                  Also at Krimek was the smal fishing boat JARSTEIN from Rissa in South-Trøndelag


                  At Mellemværftet on the other side of Vågen was the old FRIMANN and the just as old TWENDE BROEDRE

                        The most beautiful hotel in the city, Thon hotel at Innlandet


                        On the other side of Sørsundet, alongside Storkaia was WILSON ASTAKOS

                          I agree, in the picture from 1925 no, but after conversion in 1944 and in her days as Hessaferga she looked very much like the original picture in post #1070, only with windows.
                          That is from memory of travelling on her many times as a very young child, growing up on Hessa before the bridge at Steivaagsundet was opened.

                            Turning around in Sørsundet heading for the Markussundet (where all cruiseships enter), we got Thon Hotel in one of the wheelhouse windows


                            People enjoying


                            The old sundbåt NORDSUND on the slipway of the old boat repair shop Furset Slip. Further up you can spot the Bauta with the flagpoles and salute cannons


                            Sørsundet is behind us


                            Old and new times meet, as we pass the old Lossius residence from 1740 and the new funkis houses from our time

                              As we sail out Markussundet, the evening sun light up the eastern part at Nordlandet (Marokko)....


                              ...while the west side over at Innlandet is in the shadow.
                              (They must hate the sun those who want to spend millions on a funkis house in the shoreline there)


                              Passing over from Markussundet to Bolga area, we sail over a sea area called Bolgsvaet. Here we look east over towards Vestbase offshore service base, we can spot the airport control tower and the Tustna mountains behind


                              Nice evening for a boatride...


                              Just a little study in b/w

                                Our purpose of the boatride was to take a closer look at the shipwreck in Bolgvågen, presented earlier in here


                                Then we sailed out of Bolgvågen again heading for Rensvik and Omsundet area


                                Nice pattern in the rocks


                                My captain (friend and colleague)


                                The sharp evening sunlight gives nice colours


                                Just a study of details. Here's the engine and propeller control
