    We should not forget to send you a warm "Welcome", Helgeland. We appreciate very much your posts with lot's of interesting ship pictures! Keep on posting and share our forum. It is nice to have another Hurtigruten port represented by a forum member. I hope for some spots of Hurtigruten ships also.

              I will not bore everyone with small boat pictures from my weekend at the coast, but here is my favorite "I might actually be able to get this" boat.



              She is a Ranger Tug R-25
              http://www.rangertugs.com/r/r-25.cfm

              I also like this yacht though it has to take second place because it is in the "there is no way I could ever afford that" category.



              Her name is Kasekuchen. My zoom lens has failed me. I am unable to read the small name plate (oval shape on the rear deck support).

                I agree with your thoughts about R-25. Very tricky design and full of good ideas. You might get very fast seasick on her on open sea, but with 0,66m draft she is suitable also for all channels and rivers. Too small for 4 persons but perfect for 2 and some guests for one night.

                Reminded me looking forward to our houseboat-vacation in the beginning of September.... Yippieee....

                    Drillship "Bucentaur" left the harbour tonight


                    This "Bucentaur" gave me a strange feeling that I've "been" here before.... Here's an image I took 3rd May 2007


                    Shuttletanker "Navion Norvegia" docked at nr. 8 at Vestbase. Largest ship ever to visit down there, and I was not able to capture the hole length in one frame....

                      This is a new vessel for me, so I'll have to search for info. Note the car on deck
                      Nothing much passes me, and not so this time either...

                      Well, to be serious:
                      Just found out what this "Nora Victoria" is all about.
                      She was built at Promek AS at the island Smøla north-east of Kristiansund and delivered to her owners Bokn Sjøservice AS 22. June '09, the day after the delivery.
                      The vessel is Yardnr. 100 from Promek AS.

                      On my pictures we see a car on the deck, so I guess the owner drove to Kristiansund to pick up the new vessel and then sail her back to Rogaland.

                        Norwegian visitor

                        Seen today in Loch Sunart, Norwegian motor cruiser 'Briggen'. She looked Scandinavian (according to my Husband) and then I saw the Norwegian flag so we went to collect our Norwegian friend so she could speak her native language to the crew.

                        lovely varnished hull

                          One of my uncles had a vessel very similar to that one, a long time ago before he fell ill with Alzheimer. It was a wooden cruiser, quite large, and it reminds me of this one...

                            Just curious:
                            After having your norwegian friend talk to the crew, do you know where they came from in Norway...? Stavern, by any chance...?

                            (Just trying to find out the maker of that vessel...., which the owner must be very fond of, according to all the fenders).

                              I'm so sorry your Uncle fell ill, I'm glad to see the memory of his boat lives on.

                                I've found these details of the boat:
                                Briggen built 1970, 30ft
                                hull Varnished deck Cream
                                Motor Cruiser

                                They talked about somewhere to the left of a fjord that I didn't know but I'll ask.

                                The fenders may have had something to do with coming down the Caledonian canal
