The Dutch coaster Mv. Stroombank is leaving the port of Figueira da Foz in Portugal.
Normally operations are restricted to daylight only, but because bad weather was forecasted for the days to come we've received an exemption and were allowed to depart during dark hours.

Cargo operations were running close to the departure deadline so we quickly secured the cargo and prepared the vessel for sea.

The tide was running out so we used the forward spring to keep position as we went slow astern to use the wheel effect to open the stern and let the tide bring the ship out.

Just after departure we passed our sister ship the Sagasbank so we passed slowly to wave and shout goodbye at our friends.

By port regulations a tugboat followed us out to the breakwaters because of the
As we approach the lock we shift controls to the port wing and bow thruster, rudder & pitch control are all tested (again).

The pilot transfers to the pilot boat and continues to give us advice over the VHF.

The time laps video was reordered at 6 to 3 times normal speed and compresses about 45 in 5 minutes.

Mv Stroombank has a left turning pitch propeller, acting right handed when pitching astern. The bowthruster is adequately powered but the rudder has been modified during newbuilding and is quite small, making her lazy to steer at speeds below 2 knots.

Subtitles narrate the navigation.

published on 18 January 2022

If you fancy seeing what it’s like aboard during some rough weather sea trials, here’s a pretty cool little video of our Interceptor 48 pilot built for the Port of Sines.
