..on a day at work!
The weather has been unreal this week, so I thought I'd share some views from my work. We start at the heart of Stockholm 8.30 in the morning. After four hours and some 45 stops along the way we arrive at the final destination for a two hour break before we return and do it all again in opposite direction. Ten hours after leaving Stockholm we are back at the same dock. Weekends are spent on another destination and after seven days of work I go home and play with my modelboats for seven days! I'm sure they will come up with a cure for this some day.
Hope you enjoy, and have a nice weekend!

Hello! Hama,
Very nice pictures. Thank you for posting them. It would be interesting if you could tell us a little about M.S. Skaregarden - dimensions, where built, type/make of engines, speed and that sort of stuff.
Best Wishes

Hi guys!
Yes, been doing this since -95 and still love it, even though you miss the ocean sometimes. The work changes with the season and the weather, very challenging and interesting on a dark and stormy winter night as it's fantastic on days like this. Not to mention when you get to break ice, that is funny! As for the boat, her captains pride and joy. Been one of her two captains( the other one is my best friend and a member here as well ) for eight years now. She was built in -78, made of aluminum so she is in traffic from April to December. Owned by the city council. 35m x 7,5m. Draught 1,6m. Four main engines, Scania, about 300hp each, two aux engines, top speed 17knots, 296 passengers, gross tonnage 296, weigh about 115tons when stores, ballast and bunker onboard. Crew is captain, two AB´s and one in the cafeteria who also cook for us. If you are interested, the company that own the boat has a site, there you can see all the company boats and even some short films. It's possible to view the site in English I think.
Thanks for your interest, and please anybody who wants, feel free to show your work.

Looks like a great way to see the coastline around the islands there. My only experiences of Stockholm involve leaving the overnight ferry from Turku and driving straight into the morning rush-hour traffic! One day we'll have to stop and look around the city.

Hello again!
Just to show that not every day is clear skies and calm seas, last week at work we had some typical autumn weather. On sunday we had a gale with around 20 m/s mean wind( busy day for the sea rescue ) followed by fog on Monday - Wednesday mornings. I hope there will be some ice here this winter to show you.
All the best!

This week it was time for scheduled drydocking, it's been 2 1/2 years since last time. Surveyors from the administration do their check. Some of the shaft bearings in the shaft supports will be replaced, one of the rudder bearings is replaced, bottom and hull sides will be painted, some touch up painting to the rest of the boat as well along with many other small things. I am always amazed of the hull lines when I see her on land, she was fitted with "sponsoons" 10-11 years ago to increase stability. The hull is a modellers nightmare I think. On the bow you can see the fender that is attached to a rather genius "ramp arrangement", a part of the bow and the deck/gangway is hoistable. When you land/dock to a landingpier/quay you put the ramp in level with the quayside for easy embarkation, it is controlled with pedals by the captain.

You're absolutely right there chingdevil, it's probably more of a way of living.

It's called "Coast" and has had two series here and several repeats but always worth a watch. It has inspired my current project after watching the episode in the Shetlands.

Hama, in April last year we did a trip out to Vaxholm on the Soderarm - a sister ship? The trip is thouroughly recommended - the second thing to do in Stockholm after the Vasa museum. I was amazed at how manoeuverable she was - some people got off at one of the islands and we were just getting under way again when someone realised they'd missed their stop - the captain spun her round again and let him off. I think from the set of drawings on board she had twin-ended power pods rotating through 360 deg at the stern. I guess its a tough job but someone's got to do it, eh?
Title: Re: Follow me..
Post by: hama on October 16, 2008, 10:03:04 am
Doug, "Coast" is always worth a watch but somehow I always seem to miss parts of the program. Should try and get it on DVD.  :-))
Tobyker, great to hear that you did a trip to my hometown Vaxholm! The "Söderarm" that you travelled with is one of three sisters, they are the biggest and newest ones in the company. As you say she is fitted with twin schottels in the stern, first ones in this company, and it took some time for their captains to learn this new technique. However, as you say, they are very good at handling these boats now and everybody who works on them love them. I haven't had the pleasure of trying them yet, the plan is that I shall learn these boats later this fall or coming winter. I'm looking forward to it with both enthusiasm and horror! I guess you Tito Neri guys here would do a much better first attempt than I will perform! I have for some years worked extra on car ferries with schottels, but they have one schottel in each end so there is a risk of me making the wrong maneuvers!  :embarrassed:  In a little more than a year from now there will be two more boats delivered, similar design to these three but smaller.

Post by: hama on December 17, 2008, 08:37:26 pm
Did a nightshift on the state roadferry this night, 17.30 - 05.30. I sometimes work there when I'm off my own work. Thought it might interest some of you Tito Neri guys as she is fitted with two Schottels so I took some pics of controls and indicators. If you haven't seen one before, you turn the "wheel" to rotate the pod 360 deg and the lever on the wheel controls the throttle/prop rev. On this ferry the props rotates all the time, but you can have clutch control in the lever as when you pull the lever to it's highest position the prop stops. Shes a double ender so there is one pod in each end. One way trip is 5 min. Many, many trips on a 12h shift.

I keep on reporting from my "real" work. The boat I work on is laid up for the winter and will be back in service at the end of March, beginning of April so I will have to "drive" some other boats in the meantime. This winter some major work is carried out on m/s Skärgården. All six engines have been lifted ashore. There will be two new aux engines and the mainengines are being overhauled to almost as new. There will be many other things to be fixed as well. This is what the engineroom looked like today.
Merry Christmas to you all!

Happy Christmas hama - this thread is a very pleasant reminder of our short holiday in Stockholm - hope we can get back soon and see more of the Archipelago. Is the car ferry the one that sails out of Vaxholm?
Title: Re: Follow me..
Post by: hama on December 21, 2008, 11:23:01 pm
Hi tobyker!
Yes, thats right. You've seen it so you know it ain't a beauty but quiet efficient. 83m long, about 60cars and manned by captain and engineer. From the bridge one man can run the whole ferry, if everything works that is, start/stop of engines, load cars by means of trafficlights, even the mooring is controlled from the bridge. But the coffeemachine is manual, and one step down in the messroom!
All the best!

Hama, The pictures of the boat on the railway have given me a reason to ask. This vessel has sailed for 2 1/2 years and there is no marine growth? I do see the zincs need replacing ,but no marine growth? Amazing! You are sailing in salt water?
 Anyway, Very nice scenery up there.
Title: Re: Follow me..
Post by: amdaylight on December 30, 2008, 08:28:00 pm
Several things might be going on in regards to bottom fouling, First is I Think that they are in the Baltic Sea which due to its composition supports far less marine organisms than other body's of water. Case in point is how well the Vasa was when they recovered her. Second the vessel may be sending part of her time in fresh water that will also kill off the bottom growth. Third Bottom paints have gotten much better and boat owners regularly scrub the bottom of their vessels so they don't have to haul out as often. When I owned my own sail boat I would scrub the bottom once a month, granted I had a racing sail boat so every thing we could do to get the most speed out of the boat we would do.

Hi there Jerome Morris and Andre!
Thanks for your interest! As for the marine growth. m/s Skärgården has her night berth in Stockholm most of the year and thats where the lake Mälaren runs out into the Baltic so it's pretty much freshwater. On the pictures she's been washed with high pressure waterwash prior to bottompainting, but there is very little growth of course compared to saltwater vessels. Hope this explains some of your thoughts.
Happy new year to you!

Post by: hama on January 01, 2009, 02:21:31 pm
Have just spent a few days on another boat, m/s Vånö, one of five sisters built in the beginning of the -90´s. She has three MAN engines and a topspeed of 22 knots and as I'm used to 17 knots on "my" boat it feels like driving a fighterjet, almost.  {-)  The second pic is of m/s Ramsö, one of three sisters from the -60´s. One of them was taken out of service last year and the other two will probably meet the same destiny when the two newbuildings arrives in about a year. I have the drawings of this one and sometimes think of making a model of her as I have been working on them as well. The last pic is of the "ugly" ferry I told you about earlier in the thread.
All the best!

I started this thread with some "unreal" weather, well I think it was unreal again the other morning. Clear sky, -5C and a very intense sun. 4-5cm clear ice covered the water, it was so beautiful, I wish you could have been there. The boat this time was the Waxholm 1, one of two sisters built in -83. She looks quite funny but is a joy to drive and work on. She is built for ice conditions with twin CP-props and a bowthruster. The two 16 litres Volvo engines give about 1200hp and 12,5 knots.
Title: Re: Follow me..
Post by: hama on February 05, 2009, 09:41:29 pm
The boat from Stockholm arrives, some passengers have to change boat for their destination. What looks like calm water in the last picture is actually ice, the sound when we broke it was very beautiful as was the look of all the pieces of ice flying away.
Hope you enjoy!

Hello again!
Now I've started my education on the "new" boats. Been on m/s Sandhamn on two occasions practicing, my brother was the captain so I thought I could terrorize him a bit. Very funny to drive once the first horror has settled, totally new technique for me with two pods in the stern. The first one, m/s Söderarm has Schottel and the following two has Steerprop from Finland. Very maneuverable as you can imagine, spins on the spot. This must be like the Tito Neri! Will take some time to become good at this as they are also a lot bigger in all aspects compared to the other boats in the company. Tomorrow I will probably terrorize the captain on the sister m/s Dalarö! Show some pictures taken with my new camera, first one is of me paralyzed at the controls, second one is the controls on starboard wing, third is from entering Sandhamn harbour where the boat got her name from, the fourth is of my brothers stiff arm as he holds his cellphone between his shoulder and ear.
All the best!

Hi again. Just came home from another week at work. Winter made a last attempt at our country, 1 - 2 dm snow fell during Monday Tuesday last week. Very beautiful but kind of unnecessary as it's all gone now. This time I worked on a boat called "Vindöga". She and her sister where built in -78. A little bit like a tugboat with one big CP-propeller and a bowthruster, not as many horsepowers as a tug though! They where rebuilt in -00 with a new passenger salon on the upper deck among other things. They didn't do anything to the impressive funnel though! One funny thing about these boats is that I built a model of the sister "Solöga" in -92, three years before I started working as a captain on these boats. So I had some practice on the model before I handled the big one. The last picture you can watch either way!

Hello again!
First of all, I have a new computer and haven't tried the photo part yet so this will be a test to see if I can post images. Cross my fingers.
This Thursday I did my last day on my old vessel, m/s Skärgården. I've spent 10 years on her and now I got an opportunity to shift to the vessel m/s Dalarö instead. I'm really looking forward to this as she is a very nice boat. Lets hope there will be some ice this winter! A couple of weeks ago she was on the slipway not far from where I live so went there and had a chat with my new shipmates and took some pictures. She looks quite big on land. She was built in 2005, has four mainengines coupled to two Steerprop thrusters. There is also a bowthruster.
All th best.

Hi Hama,

What a wonderful job you have!

Curious to know, on your companie's website it lists the Norskar as being a steamer, being 1910 built it's likely she was steam powered when built, but is she still or is she diesel now?

Greg
Title: Re: Follow me..
Post by: hama on November 01, 2009, 12:22:56 pm
Hi there Greg!
Yes, Norrskär and Storskär are steamers. Steam engines are original but the boilers have been replaced during the years and they are both fired by diesel burners since the -70´s I think. By the way, Norrskär means Northern skerries and Storskär Great skerries. ( more or less )
And thanks for reminding me, it is a great job, playing with boats all day long!
All the best!

Hi Hama,

Great pictures.... and first time I've seen this thread?!?!?!?   {:-{

1. Do you tie up at the small docks?

2. The Wooden steer wheel in this picture, is it functional or just for show?

(http://www.modelboatmayhem.co.uk/forum/index.php?action=dlattach;topic=12930.0;attach=56084;image)
Title: Re: Follow me..
Post by: hama on September 10, 2010, 08:12:15 pm
Hello Martin!

1. Most of the docks we just stop to let passengers or cargo on/off. We put the "nose" to the dock and then go "slow ahead" to stay put, then it's off to the next stop. Only takes seconds if it's a few passengers and of course many minutes if you have to discharge cargo by crane.The older boats and the steamers go in on a springline, a crewmember stand at the bow and throw the line on to the bollard. They are really good at it. At the end destination you tie up for break or for the night, those docks needs to have bollards at some distance apart so we can get a good bearing on our lines.
2. Skärgården is a little older so she has the steering hydraulics all the way up in the wheelhouse whereas newer vessels have electric wires from the wheelhouse down to the steering room. The wooden wheal is the backup steering if the electrics should fail, newer vessels have duplicated electrics instead.

Hope this answers your questions!
And thanks for this great site!!   :-))

All the best!

Hello!
Winters here again, in fact it's been here for about a month already. Some pictures from work. The two pictures of my boat where taken from another company boat when we met and I gave him way in the broken ice. He was inwardbound and in a hurry, I was outward bound. Also a picture of two LEGO boats I designed on the "Design by me" site, very funny and not too expensive. My two girls got them as a gift when my family came to celebrate newyears eve on board.
All the best!

Title: Re: Follow me..
Post by: hama on February 12, 2011, 09:30:17 pm
Hello again!
Winter turns the archipelago into a totally different world with new possibility's. The ice makes life much easier for the islanders, they can travel fast between the islands and to the mainland on snowmobiles or ATVs. How the channel through the ice runs is strictly regulated in coordination with the locals on the islands. At some places they have to pass the broken ice, one way of doing so is to use a small boat and push and pull yourself over. At these crossings we have to pass at very low speed to keep a narrow channel for them to pass. When you meet another boat, your big brother on a smaller sister for instance, one of you has to make way for the other. The channel through the ice is clearly visible on the radarscreen. If you get a short break you can always run your RC-cars on the ice! There was a snowstorm the other day, good thing is that you don't have to worry about the mooring for the night as your in the ice. Bad thing is that several dm of snow on the ice makes it very sticky to pass through. After the low pressure had passed, it was a beautiful day to say the least.

It's been 1,5 years since last drydocking and two long winters have passed. There is a big need for some maintenance to hull, propeller arrangement and engines. Here we are at the shipyard together with sister"Sandhamn". I like the "driver" of the slipway, at least he got a chair! On one of the picture is a tugboat with red hull. She is the former "Riverman" of Hull, built in Norway. As it was a friend of mine who bought it some years ago I helped him bring her home. Took us a week via Kiel canal. Remember when we stood at the quayside in Hull and saw her for the first time in real life, thinking she was a bit small to cross the North Sea in march! But thats another story.
All the best!

Great shots, now we know how you can go through the ice in winter... an ice breaker hull !  Now do you get some time off before the summer rush ?

Hello Duncan!
Yes, she is a good icebreaker. At the end of the winter we measured the thickness of the ice to at least 50cm, but then the equipment take a beating. Just about everything shakes and shivers all day long. In fact one of the jobs carried out at the shipyard now is to go through all electric connections in the switchboards to tighten loose screws.
Thanks for your concern, but I get my days off. In fact I'll have a three week vacation during the summer. :-))
All the best!

Hello!
I told you earlier about the LEGO-boats i designed for my girls, they got them as a gift when celebrating newyears eve on board. Well, during this evening me and my crew found it to be a good idea to make a bigger boat as a gift for a former captain of m/s Dalarö who was turning sixty in April. In fact, we found it to be a good idea the day after as well. This very nice man was supervising the build of these three sisters in Norway, so he should be capable of building a LEGO version too. So, after several attempts on the computer I was satisfied with how it looked and ordered it. As I worked during his birthday I never got to see his reaction but I was told that it was a total success! This week he was kind enough to let us borrow his boat so that everybody who gave it to him can get a chance to see the end result. I really recommend a visit to the LEGO site "Design by me" where you can build anything you want and get your own LEGO-kit.
All the best!

Had to clear some space on my phone, so uploaded two test videos I had there. One test of the IMovie stop motion app and the other one with the slopro slow motion app. Both are from work so I put them here.
All the best!
