    GUNNERUS is such a cute vessel: stationed in Trondheim, Norway, and operating as a science vessel for the local University. They are manned with mostly volunteer, part-time crew-members.

    I have photographed this vessel more times than I dare admit, but with so little ship movements in this fjord, she becomes a natural draw for me. After all, she is a very nice looking vessel.

    Two Live Fish Carriers were named on the same day 12/11-16. I could only catch one, the Ronja Supporter: http://www.smp.no/naeringsliv/2016/1...ick_articles=3








    The other one was the Ro North, but I can only link to smp.no for that one: http://www.smp.no/naeringsliv/2016/1...ick_articles=1

    The largest Offshore vessel built in Norway, "Normand Maximus" was named at the yard in Brattvaag in July, but delivery was delayed.
