Most people will think this strange, I believe.

But I think your wife can be called lucky, too. :-)
There aren't so may people nowadays who are imaginative and make use of it.
Sometimes when I see a rather old vessel I kind of try and make up some biography for it, too. :-D

If you browse through my shots, there are lots of them from rhodes. May sound sick, but i had somehow the shipspotting-time of my life among the wrecks. Super stuff, walking along in 45 c heat, dreaming about how their life was. My wife often finds this strange, but she understands me as well.

Lucky ME...
Jens Boldt on Jan 15, 2008 22:09 (11 years ago)
Never seen a wrecking place in my life.
Must be kind of a morbid atmosphere around there.
But I think it's quite fascinating, too.

I would wonder about all the stories these wrecks could "tell". :-D
Sounds crazy, I think...
Tomas Østberg- Jacobsen on Jan 15, 2008 21:44 (11 years ago)
Well, the fishingboat was even stranger in real life, goddamn, there was MANY strange ships at that lot, a wrecking-place in rhodes town. One day i must return.
Jens Boldt on Jan 15, 2008 21:18 (11 years ago)
Crazy stuff, indeed. :-D

Especially the so called "fishing vessel".
I really would like to see this one afloat...

Not many strange ships around Hamburg though.
At least I haven't seen a vessel equal to these two beauties of yours. :lol:
Maybe they only come out at night around here.
Tomas Østberg- Jacobsen on Jan 15, 2008 18:14 (11 years ago)
Hi chief, have a look:

Plain ugly

plain über-strange...

I love them both!
Jens Boldt on Jan 15, 2008 11:29 (11 years ago)
You mean your own private competition, or are other members involved?

Which is your No. 1 at the moment? Is there a photo here? Questions...

I'm not sure if I can see any photos at the moment. I haven't tried yet. Hope this problem does not end up again in a total crash!:-o
Tomas Østberg- Jacobsen on Jan 15, 2008 11:21 (11 years ago)
Yep. I have this thing going on in here: The worlds uglyest ship, and there are some heavy-contenders there. But its not an ill-ment competition, hehe.. Just showing the diversity among ships.
Jens Boldt on Jan 14, 2008 22:11 (11 years ago)
I thought about this for a while and my conclusion is: There are no ugly vessels in my opinion. They may look strange (like e.g. the late Aquarama/Marine Star) or bizarr (like almost all vehicle carriers) but your right, each got its certain charme.
I think even feeders do! :-D
Tomas Østberg- Jacobsen on Jan 14, 2008 12:00 (11 years ago)
Yeah, its strange. Every ship has its.. I dont know.. Charm. But some ships you may look hard to find it, hehe..
I really see your point, man.
Jens Boldt on Jan 13, 2008 23:19 (11 years ago)
What should I say? I got about 95 kilos and you're taller than I am!!! :-D

I already had a look at Janus tonight, looks nice, unlike most tugs here in Hamburg.

When I became a member here there was nothing like cruise liners for me. But that changed a lot meanwhile. Cruisers are still my favourite ones but I now also enjoy having a look at a fishing vessel from... let's say... Faroe Islands as well. :-)
Tomas Østberg- Jacobsen on Jan 13, 2008 23:08 (11 years ago)
Hehe... Well, i have turned 101 kilos. So.. Now its the gym again. Yes, its nic ethat we like different ships, in a way. I like tugs. Shot a very big one today, in tønsberg, the Janus. 19 000 bhp!
Jens Boldt on Jan 13, 2008 22:55 (11 years ago)
A photo of Arthur Maersk has been posted lately tonight, so I think this will give good balance for COKL. :-D
Really great shot of Actuaria and some funny story.
The best things happen when you're not expecting them. Hope the burger did not weigh too heavy on your stomach. :-D
Tomas Østberg- Jacobsen on Jan 13, 2008 22:47 (11 years ago)
Yeah, she will probably puke in disgrace about it. I dont know. I have a softspot for 168ers.
When i saw actuaria came racing towards us, click here for a look, i was even more sold.
Jens Boldt on Jan 13, 2008 22:44 (11 years ago)
I prefered the first one ;-) :-D

But this one's nice, too. (Something for COKL) :-)
