Great trip in Norway

Made a trip from Kirkenes in the northern of Norway almost at the border to Russia to Oslo in the south with 3 Osprey Falcon 8,2m.
One boat had 2 X 225 hp Yamaha fourstroke one 2 X 200 Yamaha HPDI and the last one had 2 X 246 Steyr inboard turbo diesels.
Here is some pics from the trip and it`s worth doing it because the nature is unbelivable, high mountains with waterfalls in the fjords, 20-25 degrees in the air and still snow on the mountains.
And offcourse the midnight sun, you can see the sun 24 hours per day, wich is very strange to live in, you think it`s the middle of the day but acctually in the middle of the night.
See the pics and you will go there.

Great photo's and what a wonderful looking trip, had an explore around Alesund a few years ago. But thats small fry compared to your trip.
Interesting placement for the radar arches I had been wondering about placement mid ships but not seen many people opt for that location.
Out of interest which of the three set ups did you prefer?
The solent doesn't compare to coast line like that.
Have Fun

Hi Jelly

Hope you liked Ňalesund, it`s really nice up there, actually the boats were so different to drive so depending of the seas there was always one that was a little bit better than the other, flat water it was the one with 2 X 200 HPDI and heavy seas was the diesel inboard and the one with 2 X 225 hp fourstroke was something between.
There was trim tabs on the diesel and and 2 X 225hp fourstroke and the 2 X 200 HPDI had ballast tanks wich also was a different to drive.
But if i would prefer one i would take the 2 X 200 HPDI it was more sportive, but i loved the fourstroke engines, so quiet and nice.

Regards

Petrov
