    Ouch - mezz deck ramp on one of Wightlink's Isle of Wight ferries decided to break - would imagine that made a bit of noise when it went.

        Nothing like a light colored car deck full of old "snus" (snuff (?) ) and chewing gum...

        But, indeed, great photos Joakim!

          A few random ferries from this year's trip.

          Starting off with the rather less than glamorous Moss to Horten crossing. Bastø I was just swallowing up the last of her cargo as we arrived.



          Can't say that these are my favourites - I suppose it's hard to keep them looking good when they're hammered like these ones are, but it wasn't as clean, friendly and well-equipped as the Norwegian boats further west. I think what partly put be off was the view from the back of Bastø IV - look at the shoreline, look at the wake - we're going in a straight line but aren't exactly upright!! Wasn't that windy - just wet.



          Rather more pleasant - and in much better weather - here's the Mortavika to Arvsågen run (in some of Kristian's recent photos too), and Mastrafjord is having a lazy Sunday lie-in.



          Not a bad looking boat.



          And finally, something different - and a lot smaller. Sand, on its way from, well, Sand!



          Cheers,

          Mark.

              A few from Germen's bit of the world.

              On the way to Norway this summer we stayed, as we often do, near Groningen. We made a detour to Lauwersoog and watched the Wagenborg ferries running out to Schiermonnikoog in the West Frisian Islands.

              No tourist cars on the island, but one or two vehicles on the vessels, which is why this is probably the nearest place I can find to put them!

              Firstly Monnik having a restful Sunday on the berth.



              Then Rottum arriving back on the mainland.



              Hopefully not an urgent Ambulance case - it all seemed very relaxed.







              Then after the few vehicles had come off the hordes of foot passengers made their way across the bridges.



              Soon to be joined by their luggage.



              I really enjoyed our time in this bit of the North of the Netherlands and look forward to returning next year.
              Cheers,

                  Thanks for the link in post 1892, Sir PoloUK....

                  Interesting read - this is something that I have feared would happen on ferries with suspended car-decks.

                    Ms Spathoek (1988) In 2014 was ms Varicose corner retrieved from EVT. The ship sails since then in the timetable between Harlingen and Terschelling. Ms Varicose angle is ca. 67 meters long and 12 meters wide. On board is space for 350 passengers and 55 cars. Two MwM-Motors of an output of 1440 kW provide a speed of 10 miles per hour (ca. 19 km

                              On her way to Grytøya. In the background, "Gann" is on her way to Sortland.

                                And one of "Dyrøy". "Strandebarm" was supposed to replace "Dyrøy" until the new ferry arrived from Turkey, but "Strandebarm" did not have enough height on her car deck, and is now used as a reserve ferry.
