St Erik arriving at the New Älvsborg Fortress
Tourist boat photographed at Gothenburg on 7 August 2010.
See picture #3447
for details of this vessel.
My friend Captain Olle can be seen on the right wing of the bridge, using the portable steering console to guide the boat to the quay, and deckhand Christian is at the bow holding the mooring rope, with which he will expertly lasso a bollard on the quay. The passengers disembark and board via a ramp through a gate at the bow.
This is one of the tourist boats I use to get my photographs of Skandiahamn (in the background) and Skarvikshamn. The others are Carl Michael Bellman and Lasse Dahlquist, which are shown on the associated "Your Boat" web site.
