    "Fjordtank" is one of the many smaller tankers sailing up and down the coast to deliver all kinds of fluents.
    It can be anti-freeze fluid, any kind of acid, diesel, petrol and what not in that category.
    Right now she's listed with "Hazard or Pollutant Catergory C Cargo"...., what ever that might be.
    I belive that is the name of the category cargo she's allowed to carry...

    These small ships are like small cargotrucks: We have a pipe or enormous/huge tankers coming with oil or other fluents to a central place in the country. Then the armada of smaller tankers take over and deliver the ordered amount of a type fluid to customers all around the country...

    Hope the answer was to your satisfaction

    EDIT: B Y T H E W A Y......., since we (or rather I) talk about it, here's another example of a smaller tanker bringing fuel to the tankstation of Shell Oil. Small tankers are needed, due to the fact that huge tankers can't go everywhere and there are certainly no economics in digging down pipelines to every place that need fluents of some sort every once in a while....

      A dear friend of mine recently bought this wonderful wooden boat in Southern Norway recently, and on his way home to Northern Norway, they naturally passed by Rørvik, giving me an opportunity to both catch up and see this wonderfully restored wooden boat from 1965.

      Powered by a Caterpillar and about 50 feet long. He will use it in connection with his wife's recently purchased cafeteria on Husøy (Senja) for tourism mainly.

          Yeapp. RBT new boat. The vessel was completely gutted and rebuilt by previous owner and is built in ... wood (naturally) .. I think that is 'oak' in English. The original vessel was built in 1965 and is now in a stunning condition and ready for a new tourist career out of Husøy, Senja.

                    Boat charters and tourist trips... you may hire her for a day in Tromso while you stop there on your Crystal cruise...

                      She has beautiful, simple lines and of course I love the canoe stern. Have they picked a name yet?

                        Do you know if they have a website where you can get information?

                          It makes sense once you expaine it. It makes sense to take gasoline and fuel oil by tanker. The fijords in a very long and narrow country provide great access and natural harboars for ships the entire length of the country. If it were not for the North Sea weather it sounds like a fun job working on a local tanker.

                            So far, they have the original name... Støgutten. I didn't ask whether they planned to change it or not. Støgutten would mean something like 'steady-boy' in English.

                            Thanks for the link. I'll ask them if they need any help making an English page also..
