    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.

    Interesting vessel, the ACC Mosby.

    I had heard about her once or twice in another relation. I remembered she back then sailed as a "fishery patrol vessel"... not sure if she still does that.

    A quick search found this webpage where she is/was listed for sale: https://www.auksjon.no/product/RV_ACC_MOSBY/3521

    She was passing Tromsø earlier this afternoon on her way to Kvænangen in north Troms with good service speed at 16 knots.

    She almost looks like a passenger vessel... notice the row of windows at her stern. She does have some cute design details to her as well.

    "Haugfjord" north Tromsø strait last saturday. The ship carries by-products (silage) from the aquaculture industry and from pelagic fishing.

    I remember as a child, I was thinking what if the containers were all made of glass, and we could see what all were filled with.

    That would be fun.

    Of the two great photographs, I place my bet on Lady Ann Marie as the most beautiful one of them. Her wavy blue hull fits her so well, she almost looks "yacht-like" when you look away from the cranes on deck.
