    Re: ::: Finnmarken :::

    Is she in for a repaint in Singapore, or will that be taken care of at Westcon in Ølen again...?

      She's in for repaint, restauration and class inspection.
      To my understanding she'll be ready for the ruta when she gets back.

          She is still at Western Anchorage, so probably for bunkering.

            Thank you so very much for keeping us updated on her progress in and around Singapore.

            Would be absolutely awesome if you got an image of her before departure.

            As far as I understand, the major restoration is done in Singapore while some of the minor things such as the return of some of the furnitures and other equipments will be onloaded again in Norway (from storage).

              Hey, we can play our guessing game again.

              Will Finnmarken come home via the Cape or via Suez?

              She sailed out via the Cape but I guess Suez for the homeward transit given that she's already in the northern hemisphere at Singapore.

              But who knows, maybe the Suez' charges make the overall cost of that route higher?

                As far as I know she is proceeding around Africa, whether due to Suez cost or because of the danger of piracy in Gulf of Aden I don't know. (She is probably not "hardened", or have the safe room etc. required)

                If proceeding at the normal service speed of 15 kts. and assuming destination Bergen, the voyage will take 34 days via Cape. If leaving today ETA 21. Jan. 2012. If through Suez the voyage will take 24 days (+ 1 day for Suez passage). ETA 13. Jan. 2012.

                If proceeding at reduced speed the trip around Africa will take:
                14 Kts. = 36 days. ETA 24. Jan. 2012.
                13 Kts. = 39 days. ETA 27. Jan. 2012.
                12 kts. = 42 days. ETA 30. Jan. 2012.
                This does not take into consideration any stops for bunkering and crew change enroute. (Probably Durban or Cape Town and possibly Las Palmas)
                That may add 2 days to the ETA, but is still in ample time to start on the regular route 16. Febr. 2012.

                Unfortunately I'm busy getting ready for my next travel today. Probably no time to go to Sentosa for pictures.

                  Finnmarken is on her way out from Western Anchorage as we speak.
                  She lifted anchor at 1240 hrs. L/T today.

                  Sorry, no pictures. I was getting ready to go to Sentosa when I noticed that she was on the move.

                  PS> They are in a hurry. At 1500 hrs. she was making 16.9 kts. while passing OPL West.

                      Re: ::: Finnmarken :::

                      She is now approaching Pulau Pisang, still at 16 kts.
                      Destination is given as Cape Town, with ETA 1630 hrs., 04. Jan. 2012.

                      PS> Sigve's time is UTC. Singapore is +8 hrs. from UTC

                      PPS> Marine Traffic should update the map they use, at least for Singapore and the nearest area around.

                        So I guess that unless someone has access to satellite AIS, we'll not see her again until she's on the Indian Ocean side of South Africa?

                          Finnmarken has passed Pulau Wee, (Sabang) at the northern tip of Sumatera an hour ago, heading across the Indian Ocean.
                          Still making 16 kts. and still ETA Cape Town 0830 hrs. 04. Jan. 2012.
