Maintenance days at Rissa Yards

A few weeks ago, car- and passenger ferry Korsfjord was taken out of her regular route and sailed to Rissa Yards for her annual maintenance, repairs and inspections, as well as a full scale liferaft drill. These are days absolutely necessary in order for us to maintain a continuous high level of safety for all travelling guests. 

In accordance with my shift-schedule, I did my last night watch on board the Glutra before setting off to Kvithylla to join Korsfjord for her days there. 

Here are some images for your enjoyment - taken in short brakes during long, and hectic days. 

More images from these days and of Korsfjord can be found on CaptainsVoyage Forum, currently at page 83.
