Well, today i catched 4 ships in larvik. Story found here about baltic stone. And this is the trial, n old russian rocket.
This however is the RBD Alexa, a smart little feeder, that trades regulary in larvik. This is the first time i get her! Another one bites the dust.

"RBD Alexa"

Hi Cokl!

Look at the anchor. Yesterday in moss, a big big stone came up with the anchor. As i took the photo, the master and some of the crew wondered how the hell it happened, and how to get it off. Funny stuff.

Indeed it is!
Interesting conversation and some good laughs (especially the one with Bremen/Hamburg/Rotterdam and you going bananas). Nice to meet both of you :-)
Tomas Østberg- Jacobsen on Oct 24, 2007 22:42 (11 years ago)
Very very nice to talk with the both of you, really like your views on things!
Ah, shipspotting and pleasant "conversation", a fine day.

It's never right.. Tomas could give me a few of his cm's - I need them badly, while he could have some of the hair on my head, I have more than enough :-)
As well stereotypes, they simply don't work, things are never as they appear to be ..
Jens Boldt on Oct 24, 2007 22:23 (11 years ago)
It's the old thing: judging from appearance. With your looks you can't possibly be Mr. Nice Guy.
But you're right, let them think whatever they want to.
I once had a very curious neighbor until I put a sign on my front door which read: "Whatever you imagine behind this door it's happening!"
She never bothered me again... :-D
Cornelia Klier on Oct 24, 2007 22:03 (11 years ago)
Yes, the ship replaced Anne Sibum. The charter for Larissa has ended (it is underway now from Antwerp to Scotland, down to Southampton and return Antwerp as far as I know. And Anne Sibum is now on a schedule to St. Petersburg - as far as I know. :-D
Tomas Østberg- Jacobsen on Oct 24, 2007 22:02 (11 years ago)
But there are many doors that gets closed, with my looks, strange, but i have never thought about it, until now recently, when i was to change work.
But what the hell.
I am happy with how i look. Thats the most important!
Tomas Østberg- Jacobsen on Oct 24, 2007 21:57 (11 years ago)
Yeah, you are offcourse right. I have been at the hospital today, so i aint on top of my game, sorry, hehe!

Thanx for straightening me out brother!

Jens Boldt on Oct 24, 2007 21:53 (11 years ago)
That's understood, me neither!
Let's call it lack of hair ;-)
Tomas Østberg- Jacobsen on Oct 24, 2007 21:45 (11 years ago)
By skinhead i did not mean the wrong kind.
Yeah, lets hire a harbour-cruiser and shoot like idiots!


Jens Boldt on Oct 24, 2007 21:38 (11 years ago)
Sounds good, if that won't work I don't know what will. They'll have to face to skinheads though I'll still have to work on the tatoos and the size :lol:
Cornelia Klier on Oct 24, 2007 21:35 (11 years ago)
Would be perfect, I could hide my 1,63 m behind you easily 8-) !
Pekka Laakso on Oct 24, 2007 21:33 (11 years ago)
All kind can happen like this stone thing. I think she replaced the ANNE SIBUM or LARISSA as they were Unifeeder vessels. MSC POLAND of course sails for MSC and now the good-old TONE is sailing on their norwegian route.
Tomas Østberg- Jacobsen on Oct 24, 2007 21:28 (11 years ago)
Hehe! I am 1.90, heavily tatooed, skinhead and.. Well, offcourse we will make a try!

Cornelia Klier on Oct 24, 2007 21:22 (11 years ago)
Hehe, well I either will be successful or they'll class me as suspicious !! The English seem not to trust me a bit when going to England, but when I was walking around in norwegian ports or such, nobody even paid attention, which surprised me a big time :-D
Jens Boldt on Oct 24, 2007 21:17 (11 years ago)
Ok then. If you should ever consider making a trip to Hamburg keep me informed. We'll take a trip to Blohm & Voss and you'll do the convincing :-D
Cornelia Klier on Oct 24, 2007 21:12 (11 years ago)
And I know that the only way to get that view is - to arrive on the ship itself :-)
Tomas Østberg- Jacobsen on Oct 24, 2007 21:06 (11 years ago)
Well, i asked kindly one day, and was extremly surprised that i got in. We are probably moving to oslo next year, so i will have to try to convince new people, hehe!
And yep Cornelia, 750 AND a stone, hehe!

Jens Boldt on Oct 24, 2007 21:01 (11 years ago)
Indeed, lucky you!
Wish I'll have that kind of luck one day with Blohm & Voss here at Hamburg
Cornelia Klier on Oct 24, 2007 21:00 (11 years ago)
so, how was that ? 550 containers and one stone ?? :p Extra cargo-space .. Now, that is really something unusual !
Tomas Østberg- Jacobsen on Oct 24, 2007 20:53 (11 years ago)
The master looked so puzzled, it was funny to see.
Such a nice thing to do of larvik havn, to let me into the docks. Lucky me!
Thanx for the nice comment brother.
Jens Boldt on Oct 24, 2007 20:45 (11 years ago)
Thanks for the extra info, Cornelia.
And, Tomas, of course a picture that rocks:-)
rgds Jens
Tomas Østberg- Jacobsen on Oct 24, 2007 21:58 (11 years ago)
Hehe... She replaced the MSC Poland, i think. And for sure, there are two more shots of her coming up.

My mistake. SOrry, she did not. Thanx MSV!
Cornelia Klier on Oct 24, 2007 18:35 (11 years ago)
Ooh nice catch, the ship is also a regular guest at Hamburg for Unifeeder :-)
