A ship on a Scandinavian cruise in the 1960s. I thought it was a P&O vessel but can't match it up with ant.

Very small vessel, about 500 grt. Not P&O. :-)

Might like a little Norwegian coaster. Did you take a little 'excursion'?

Most probably an old Hurtigruten ship https://global.hurtigruten.com/about-us/history/

Or this one of the 'Norwegian HOMEFLEET' Some of these vessels, very small, are, or were, sailing in the 1960s.


This section lists Norwegian ships in the "Homefleet"; ships seized by the Germans, ships that would ordinarily have been in foreign trade but happened to be in Norway when the Germans invaded and were unable to get out, local passenger/cargo steamers, car/passenger ferries etc., in other words - vessels that mostly sailed in Norwegian waters and/or were in domestic trade. Even though there's no special war story for some of them, their job was an important one in that they kept "daily life" going, and they all sailed in the danger zones and deserve to be mentioned. Additionally, the Norwegians who sailed on them were in a difficult situation in that they had to sail for the "enemy", and risked being sunk by "their own".

Skudenes or Sjernarøy from Stavangerske Dampskipsselskap could be candidates... I have not found a picture of the Sauda, but she was just ahead of Skudenes in the chonological list... if I just knew was under that tapaulin... Anyway, you are sure to find her listed somewhere on this page: http://www.fjordfaehren.de/no/fjord_alf.htm#a

Here is Skudenes from that linked to webpage: http://www.fjordfaehren.de/no_f/skudenes1957.htm

Hello Stein,

You nailed it! Went through some of the photos. Probably impossible, but definitely one of the ship in these http://www.fjordfaehren.de/no_f/skudenes1957.htm
What is under the tarp? The windlass and winch! Might look a bit bigger than the windlass but with a small 'cage' for mooring ropes and the tarp is up for 'weather'.

I guess Roger did a little excursion in one of these. Pretty little ships.

Stephen

On that page there was only one ship, the Skudenes under different names. But now I have learned that Skudenes, Sjernarøy and Rennesøy were sisters. That was written on this page, where Sjernarøy is pictured: https://www.haugmar.no/ms-sjernaroy/
Here is Rennesøy: http://www.fjordfaehren.de/no_f/rennesoy1958.htm (That "streamlined" bridge did not leave much space inside, consider this picture of the Rennesøy as Hidle. Looks real cramped to me, but I am used to bigger ships. Fourth picture from the top, it can be enlarged: http://jonelaugaland.blogspot.com/2017/07/

It is most likely one of these three, although the only one pictured with yellow mast is Rennesøy as Frances Barkley in Canada.

Hi Stein,
Look at the photos of the Frances Barkley. There appears a kind of frame of a 'cage' (painted buff yellow) sited behind AFT of the foremast. The same 'cage' appears FORWARD of the foremast in the original photo.... and the cage is covered by a tarpaulin. Why? No idea!

It could perhaps be some kind of protection for the passengers, who might not have the good sense to stay away from moving parts ...Or who might complain of getting grease on their clothing... Or perhaps it allowed the machinery to be turned into a bench.

And this must be the same fjord, pity they did not put a name to it: https://digitaltmuseum.no/0110151704.../media?slide=0 But I think it must be Eidsfjord. http://www.omg-6700.com/photo-gallery/eidsfjord.html

Skudenes was the only one of the three that did not have roll on capacity for cars, and this was handicapping her for the Stavanger - Leiasundet - Ystabohavn – Skudeneshavn route, particularly in summer, and she was therefore early taken out of it in that season. (I read.) I believe that almost necessitates the ship then being put into the tourist traffic, offering daytime "fjord tours.”
