Dont be afraid to ask, and have a nice day, sir.

Yep, it ain't easy, but I have the idea now and can roughly imagine how it works.
Again, thanks for enlightening me! :-)

Hehe! Well, that kind of cranes have weather-proof equipment. As these kind of ships often carries paper-rolls, and assorted other paperproducts that cant get... You know.. Wet, they need quality-gear. You see they have roofs? There are foldable arms on either side. A roof covers it. Ah. difficult to explain. Aint no racer in english me neither

Probably those vessels are not allowed in Hamburg, because they'd ask themselves why they built all the cranes at the terminals. :-D

Thanks Tore!
I've just worked my way through the wikipedia article Tomas linked in his comment.
All that technical stuff in a foreign language, wow, I have to find my dictionary!! :-o
Though I'm afraid even if it were written in German, I'd have my difficulties :-D
But it's always nice and useful to know a pro!

We are only happy to help. This ship is total self-eh... made when it comes to loading/unloading-operations. Ah, i love this kind of ships. Today i caught no other that the tucano j as well!

I meant the cranes! :-D
I had an idea that's it's something like the cranes they use on the container terminals, but wasn't sure , didn't know the right expression and so I thought I'd ask.
And it's true, I've never seen a vessel like that before.
(Yes, I know, sometimes people must get the impression I'm one from the vaults! :-D )

Thanks for the info!!

Love this one too! Grasbrook: if you need additonal info on gantry cranes, how they work onboard, the gear and equipment etc. I know a lot, since I worked on two vessels similar to this one. Just let me know (pm or mail me)
Tomas Østberg- Jacobsen on Feb 12, 2008 21:35 (11 years ago)
Do you mean the two cranes, or the red grab? The two cranes are so called gantry-cranes. Click here for lots of info.

Go and have a look at her if you can, very very nice ships! Waited for ages today for this one. Worth it!

Her sister ship( OSHIMANA, ex: Star Oshimana ) is in port of Koper, Slovenia.
