Good photo Peter,

Is she the ship that was in some trouble in the Antarctic a few months ago?

Cheers Frank

Hi Peter, picked this up on the net: M. V. Polar Star was built in Finland in 1969, and joined the Swedish Maritime Administration's fleet of icebreakers with the name of NJORD. She went through major rebuilding and modernization in 1988, and served as a working icebreaker in the Baltic until Karlsen Shipping Norway A/S bought her in April 2000, and renamed her POLAR STAR, after one of the veteran ships that had served Karlsen's Arctic cruise program. She is specially equipped for expedition cruising in polar waters and has a fleet of Zodiacs (inflatable rubber boats), available for shore excursions. (That would be that black stuff we are seeing aft) Regards, Stein.

I dont know anything about this Ship but she has just arrived again here in Ponta Delga 28th April...
Stein,
I was wondering why she had all those Zodiacs on the after end,
Peter
