Hello from Bodø, Norway!

29th May 2008, 16:00
I'm a teacher/historian living in Bodø, a city in the nort of Norway. I'm trying to track ships with the name Bodø. Up till now I've found 10 -11, from one in 1892 till to-day's ferry Bodø, going from Bodø to Lofoten. Some of these Bodøs were engaged in foreign trade, and many of them had other names before and/or after they had the name Bodø. This makes my work a puzzle so therefore I'm now asking for help: Please inform me if you know anything about ships named Bodø!

Thank you!

Welcome Jan, and welcome aboard!
I've only been to Bodø once, that was in March 2007 when on a NATO exercise in Norway.

Welcome aboard from northern England, Jan.
I hope our crew can help in your search.
If you search Miramar at http://www.miramarshipindex.org.nz/ using bodo without the accents you will get 8.
Explore the ship, join in and enjoy the voyage.

Hi Jan and welcome to SN
I was on a drilling rig on location in the Arctic Circle. We would take a helicopter out from Bodo to the Lofoten Islands then on to the rig. It was quite funny as we had to wait on Lofoten for the helicopter to take the local kids to school on the mainland, it would then return and take us out to the rig.
