        Nice picture, but doesn't that bright light in the bow make it harder to see the quay?

      Thank you Tommi for dropping by and for your comment.

      No, actually not. It's not as bad as it looks. But I have to say this though, in thick snow, I turn off almost all light until we are in position.

      Here are some more images for all of you to enjoy, they are all taken back in December whilst still on the infamous K.

      Lagatun:

          Got to test the ferry in a local gale today: 32 meters per second for the entire day, with rain and heavy swells. No departures canceled, but an extremely tired Captain after 14 hours in the Captains chair.

          Time to rest... have just 12 hours to make myself ready for another 14 hours in the chair.

          VDO coming soon to youtube, from the winds and swells of the day.

          PS: The vessel handles the water impressively. She is a delight to "drive" (as in sail).

            That is good new, so a well done design. Can you name the improvements, which have been done? Different keel design? More weight of the power unit? Different shape of the hull?.

          A few days ago, I spent 4-5 days on board the Trondheim as her Captain... it was quite an immense change for me to go back to the "ordinary" propeller and rudder ferry.

          Having been on thruster ferries for nearly a decade, going back to something "that old" is probably like jumping from an A350 to a DC9.

                  Of course these pictures are wonderful, but don't be too upset about the overwhelming response, since you did not answer my questions....

                  (for sure you did not notice, but i could not resist!! )

                  Are there the famous 10 differences between the two sisters?

                    hahahahaha.... god one, Ralf, and thank you!

                    There is a lot of effort at keeping the two sisters as identical as possible, but after a little more than half a year, there are some differences:

                    The smell on board is different.

                    There are plants in the mess room on Lagatun.

                    The barometric pressure and navigational information is placed differently on the two bridges.

                    .... not much more, YET.

                    But as I said, there is a lot of effort put into keeping them truly identical.

                    When it comes to ship handling in bad weather, the greatest improvement from my previous, is that the thrusters are placed at the each extreme end of the ship. I believe also that the "slingrekjøl" bilge-keel is larger on these ferries, making them roll less when seas come in from the side.

                    Another thing I have noticed is that they FEEL sturdier. They don't rattle and shake as much in seas, or when arriving at the fender wall. This gives us way smoother arrivals. Navigation wise, these are great ferries.

                      Thank you for these explanations. On some other place there was once the question, if there won't be the ideal ferry design some day. As i read now, there is always space for new improvements - and there were many! So as i read, for you it is a much more comfortable working place. Great!

                      Very interesting point: the different smell!
                      What can that be? Different parfumes, after shaves or deodorants of the crew? Different food served? Different materials used for fixing the floors? Different colors or cleaning material? Nice task, isn't it?

                    #72
                    Still, after having been a ferry-nation for XXX-number of years, we are still not at a point where we design and construct the perfect ferry.

                    The knowledge we (the crew on board) sit with, will never be sought when a design company sits down making drawings for a new ferry. Our opinions are of no value to them. They design something that looks great on the paper and that works in theory... but years of maritime competence shows them taking wrong again and again.

                    I find this sad and beyond tragic that we simply can not move forward to create something that is better for the crew, for the operation and for the safety.

                    Munken has a "new-ship" smell that we don't have on Lagatun: the reason is really hard to find I guess. I noticed it last time I was on night watch, when I had to run over to the other ferry to switch off some instruments on the bridge. The smell between the ships are very different.

                      is it by the way she is designed,but she looks so much shorter than the Korsfjord?

                        She is slightly shorter, K was just about 123 meters long, but Lagatun (and Munken) is 108 meters long. The new ones are also a bit more compact and much taller than before.

                        Did you know that there is whiskey made in Switzerland? (Neither did I)
                        More surprising; a distillery there produce a whiskey called Langatun:

                        Don't know if it is carried by Vinmonopolet in Trondheim.
