    I find it sad that she is changing name, though it is also understandable.

    Finnmarken suits this ship so well, but it could be because I'm used to that.

    Great image of a truly beautiful vessel.

    There were strong winds from the back. Look at the funnel.

    Finnmarken at Stadt in slightly rough weather, a whole lot less than what she is built for:

    Second that. Yes thank you Mark ...it was great to have 'our man on the spot' to keep us informed of these unexpected incidents. Big thank you also for all the delightful photography and commentary of more everyday happenings up there in Finnmark that you've been posting in other threads.

    Sadly, there has been quite a few "incidents" over the pst weeks. Things can off course happen, and I can only hope that it gets better from here onwards.

    Mechanical things break down all the time, and sometimes the ship needs a little assistance and rest.

    Thanks for the great image and report!

    Hmm - interesting. Finnmarken very, very late into H'vag. Currently 1215, and she's been stationary at the east end of the narrow bit of Magerøysund for some time, one of the tugs playing with the LNG carriers in Sarnesfjord has gone out to meet her, and Redningskøyte (lifeboat) Odin has just arrived from Havøysund. Hope all is well.

    1222, and the SAR Sea King helicopter has just come over us.

    Update 1230: Gets stranger - they were late out of Havøysund because someone had fallen overboard and had to be rescued by the MOB boat. Rescue successful and the person was saved.

    Update 1240: https://direkte.vg.no/nyhetsdognet/n...e9b50012a3f087 or http://www.radionordkapp.no/nyheter/...ler-fremdrift/

    My usual loose translation is: "On the way through Magerøysund this morning, Finnmarken suffered technical problems. The ship is now lying at anchor west of Honningsvåg, according to Hurtigruten's press office. There is no danger for ship, guests or crew, but the ship can't progress. We are working to get a solution to the problem, and will assist the ship in any way we can. There are 500 guests, and a crew of 80, on board."

    1252 https://www.tv2.no/nyheter/10688258/

    Update 1430-ish. She got here, with a little help from her friends.

    Yes, great images from Bengt as always.

    Remember how fearful we all were, that she might not return from her Australian adventure.

    Is she the only Hurtigruten ship ever to sail to the antipodes?

    Two brilliant images again.

    I love the shape of this ship and you have managed to capture her so well again.

    It will be a sad day when she is no longer a part of the coastal route and become a true expedition-cruise ship.

    You have no idea how much I appreciate seeing these images from the north, of all kinds of ships. I never get tired looking at ships, I do that all day long crossing the fjord back and forth.

    I look for details, I looks for people on board, I look for maintenance, I look for ... you know, I see a ship, and I study her every part. Mostly trying to imagine how it's like being on board as a passenger, or crew.

    Thank you!
