      Yes, indeed... owned by the officers of the Royal Norwegian Navy, and used for recreational purposes.

          Nice images of a very nice vessel.

          Minerva has an exiting appeal to hear.

                I so especially like that stern view of “The World” in post #81. Nothing quite like a little light on a white ship when the background is dark and cloudy.
                (And that boat trip notice is a classic!)

                    How long time did she spend in your "neck of the woods"?

                        Great images of Prinsendam: looks like she had a bit of current before she came into position.

                          She seemed to turn to allow the Calmac sail past and then went back to her original position. I thought she might have been anchored in Oban Bay but it was so windy, perhaps she could not risk it. I'm not sure what the size/draft limit for the bay is.

                          I would have stayed longer and got some photos from along the road but we began to worry whether our own ferry was going to be sailing or not... home beckoned

                            Thanks so much for your quick reply.

                            Yes, I guess weather can change rather rapidly in those areas of the world.

                              Corran Ferry- pier reconstruction

                              When this pier was first built, Corran Ferry was a small vessel that took few cars. A few years ago the new ferry 'MV Corran' was delivered. The pier has taken punishment from the sea, weather and ferry propulsion so that it now requires rebuilding. (previously loose boulders and stones under concrete surface).

                              It has taken most of the year to find a way of rebuilding the pier without having to stop the ferry for several weeks. This is the answer and the work has started:

                              Building and preparation of the temporary road and base for the floating pier
                              [

                              Arrival of the barge with the pier and waiting for installation
                              [

                              [

                              [

                              [

                              Installed and working- photograph from the relief ferry Maid of Glencoul

                                and a short video of boarding the ferry using the floating pier.
