          For me again and again astonishing: Coastal motor ships like Torpo and Samira. They are lo low in the water like a river ship. Do they have any restrictions where to sail to (always stay near the coast) or are they really seaworthy.

          "Wilson Ross" (MT) north Tromsø strait this afternoon with destination Murmansk (RU)
          Part of the Wilson ships are really getting old. This one was built in 1975, 45 years old.

            The Russian icebreaker "Kapitan Dranitsyn" arrived in Tromsø early tuesday morning after a long voyage from the German icebreaker "Polarstern" located 240 kilometers from the North Pole
            The ship was carrying about 100 people, divided between scientists and crew from "Polarstern"
            Due to the corona virus, no one was allowed to leave the ship after arrival.
            Most are Germans who are driven directly from the ship to the airport in Tromsø where a plane is ready to fly them home to Germany.

              Corona is causing a lot of difficulties for the expedition. The scientists from various countries are not allowed to travel, so the crew have to stay longer than planned and can ot be replaced. It is very astonishing to me that it is not possible to install an isolation lock to get sure that no infected people will enter the Polarstern.

            Coastal tanker "Haltbakk Bergen" at slow speed north Tromsø strait this afternoon.

                        Interesting design. Especially the bridge windows peeking inbetween the masts (visible from the other side). I would NOT have imagined, that this is a RoRo ship.

                          the bridge is good visable thinking about the distance of about 7,5 km
