                        Sorry, it's quite right that Ramsund Orlogstation is not closed
                        An error in the translation that should not have been included.
                        Thanks for the reminder

                          Strange that she is listing forward so much, doesn't this spend more fuel? I wonder if such ships have ballast tanks to trim when they are empty?

                          Perhaps it is more efficient to have the bulb in water than above? I don't know.
                          All the ships looking like that With-ship sailing for EIM-SHIP, for example ex. STORFOSS, sailed like that, looking like they were putting the brakes on because they forgot something.
                          Now, ex. STORFOSS is ROTSUND, sailing for another company, and she is horizontal.
                          It's a riddle to me :-)

                          I had a short research and found in an article, that it is not very efficient, if the bulbous bow is too high over the waterline. So it seems that this is the correct explanation. They are simulating more weight in the bow and ensure the optimum position of the bulb to save fuel.
