    To see fishing vessels this low in the water is very normal...
    When a vessel is this loaded, we call it (and here's another funny norwegian word for 'ehp') søkklastet

    'Søkk' is a local twist to the word 'synk' which means sink in english.
    'lastet' means loaded in english, so you see..., our words are also logical

    There's also a video on youtube, or a link here on CV of a fishing vessel loaded to the deckline going through an area around Ireland.
    The vessel had all the doors and hatches secured, and were partially submerged with only the superstruckture over the waterline at different times.
    Scary to watch, and I've heared that the crew were all on the bridge with survival suits....

        Don't get me started on the Germans love of just stacking words together until they get what they want. They end up with a lot of words 20 letters long.

          oh, but that's the fun of German!!!!!! "Geschwindigkeitsbegrenzung" is my personal favorite.
          And, yes, Ralf and Doris- I'm being serious!! I think the German language is one of the most beautiful!! It's precise, yet flows so lyrically!

                  Thank you for the great pictures. And I notice you were able to sneak your username into one of them.

                    You have reminded me I had photographed Normand Master one very sunny day in Leith, Edinburgh - 17th August 2006.

                      The anchor belongs to this vessel..., the "Gulafjord". Anchor port side only...

                        Those wooden vessels are sadly becoming a rare sight along the coast, so any image of them is a real treat. Now, these days, only plastic and GRP boats ply the waters.

                          I agree....I know the maintenance on wood must be an absolute nightmare...but they're just so.......here it comes...you guessed it.....PRETTY.

                          How could you not like a Chris Craft runabout from the 1920's, stained and varnished to a mirror finish.....or a sailboat with a gorgeous teak deck???

                          Sadly, "utilitarian" trumps "pretty now adays.......shame, really. "Pretty" does so much for one's soul..............

                            I lived on a wooden 36' Pacemaker during my summers in high school. It was my job to keep it from sinking. It was almost a full time job for me to take care of all the wood. It rotted about as fast as I could fix it.

                              Guess that means you'd fancy anything over a wooden boat...............
