      the ''anangel mariner'' is partly discharging her load, her beam is to much for the canal to Amsterdam. she had to pass 2 tunnels which make a max of the depth of the canal.
      thatswhy they discharge the cargo into barges that she can pass those tunnels



      ''am krakow''



      made a few images, but they where unfocused or there standing something in the way

        Massive ships no doubt... must be awesome to get that close to them, and so many different ships too.

            A familiar sight, even down here occasionally.

              The R/V Johan Ruud north Tromsø strait this morning,was built in 1976 at Sterkoder Mekaniske Verksted Ltd., Kristiansund (Norway) as a stern trawler for multipurpose research activities (fishery and marine biological, geological and oceanographic surveys) in open waters along the coastline and fjord areas.
              Owner: The Royal Norwegian Government
              Management: The Norwegian College of Fishery Science/The University of Tromsø.

                I grew up just meters away from Sterkoder Mek. in Kristiansund, and before "everything" became dangerous for kids (before EU, I guess), the ship yard were the playground for us.
                No fences, no security, we climbed the ships in production and we were captains, engineers, deckhands and what not. Great childhood!
                Anyway, remember JOHAN RUUD, all the way back when the vessel was just a small plate of steel (haha).

              The tanker Norsel into Tromsø this morning
              The ship supplies the fishing fleet with bunkers and goes regularly to Svalbard.

                Nice new additions, and thank you so much for sharing! I never get tired of looking at ships and images of them.

                JOHAN RUUD looks like a really cute vessel! Actually reminds me of one of those stern-loading ferries popular in the past.

                    "Tonny" north Tromsø strait this afternoon in light snow showers.
                    She transports silage, by-products from the fishing industry (fish waste)

                      She looks like an old whaler twice removed. (??)

                    SINGAPORE SPIRIT at anchor near my home today. 171,59 meters long, 27 meters wide. Arrived from Rotterdam, waiting to get her space at the quay in Sunndalsøra and Hydro Aluminium.

                      Congratulations on your new lens, Svein
                      It looks like your new 450mm lens gives great pictures.

                    Great new additions from both of you.

                    Interesting to see these images, after all I'm a seaman. As ombugge also noticed, the TONNY does indeed have a little bit strange design.

                    My curiosity killed me and I had to look her up... she was actually built in 1942!
