    Re: ::: Nordstjernen :::

    Just finished watching the programme on our national broadcaster NRK1 about the last sailing of NORDSTJERNEN in Hurtigruten, from Kirkenes to Bergen.
    A fantastic programme, very touching...., and I can admit it just as well, it was very hard to keep the tears back, so there ran a couple or three down my cheeks.

    Thanks, NRK, for making this!!!

    This article on smp.no appears to confirm what has been in the cards for a long time; Nordstjernen has received the approval as a national heritage and protected from going the way of Haakon Jarl, or from scrapping:

    Here is the picture that accompany the article:

    Coming alongside in Aalesund during bad weather in 2008.

    (I just wonder how they passed that line??)

    A very nice photo: perfectly exposed because you can still see the details in the black hull (anchor) and the white superstructure is not "washed out"... Well done job!

    Agree.... this is definitely the Nordstjernen of 1937.

    Re: ::: Nordstjernen :::

    I missed out on the great discussion here and, as a "non-FB" member, I also missed the pictures in question.
    Is it possible to post them back here on CVF???

    As for NX heading for Poland for repairs?? It does make a lot of sense. It is less expensive to do the repairs and re-classification there then to import Polish workers to Norway to do the same.

    Seeing that R.S.Platou Finance is in the picture should indicate that the finances are in place to do what it takes to get her back in shape.
    A lot of work is needed if the intention is to keep her in class and certified for passenger traffic, even if it is only in Norwegian Coastal trade.
    (As said before, International trade will require compliance with SOLAS 2010, which is a very unlikely scenario)

    But it can be done in Norway.It is not necessary to send her to Poland!
    Excellent!! I couldn't have hoped for better answer.
