    I liked this image Thijs... the green bouy balanced out the image of a green boat.

    Clearly she is doing river boating too, with the low superstructure on the stern.

    I posted some picture of the OV Bokfjord during naming ceremony in Nov. 2016:

    hahahahaha.... Back when I applied for a job there, I seem to recall that the interview was held in Ålesund. I wasn't from Dalsfjord, so that may have been the reason I didn't get accepted.

    Trondheim today?

    Oh, welcome to my city - I hope your stay is a pleasant one. I hope those ships sink some day (not really off course), they are replacing me with a computer soon.

    "Sjøveien" (PA) (meaning the Seaway) was built in Bergen in 1964 for the Norwegian Government and she worked for them in various capacities. From 1979 until 1995 she was used as a training ship for mariners. Since 1995 she has been in private ownership and during the many years since, worked for the Norwegian coast guard. After being a hotel ship for the past few years, she has now been refurbished into a classic and exclusive passenger ship and started her career in Svalbard the summer of 2017.

    BTW:After a few hours at the dock in Tromsø this afternoon they set the course for Longyearbyen.

    Inbound to Tromsø this afternoon.

    This is absolutely WONDERFUL - I have also had my fair share of hours doing navigation training on board SJØVEIEN, that was back in the second half of the 80's off course. Back then, she was grey I believe.

    Good to see her still sailing strong, and that she appears to be so well kept. Actually she looks a lot bigger than in my memory.
