    Ship Spotters and Maritime Image Thread

    In this sticky thread I'm inviting all of you that works, lives or travels by or at sea to share your nautical themed pictures.

    The pictures can be from life on board, special moments or events, beautiful sunsets or just simply daily life.

    Any pictures that stands out from your collection and can be related to the oceans (or sea) in one way or another.

    Hoping to see many interesting images in the future.

    Thank you for posting!

    PS: This is intended for single images, if you have a collection of images from the same event or similar event, please feel free to create your own thread to share them and their story.

    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.

    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 :-)

    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?

    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
