Looking out of the Harpa. This ship reminded me of the 'Cod Wars' fishing disputes between the UK and Iceland. These were a bit embarrassing because it seemed like we were bullying this tiny country.

In Finland it is said that envy takes fish from the sea. For some reason, fishing grounds and roads are perpetual disputes. It is not always remembered that good bargaining could be achieved through good bargaining. The image of the ship is made for the oceans.

@Jypyä Pop: Very true. I hope Brexit will be resolved through good bargaining!

Shaun from Thorton, United States

This is just magnificent. As a great fan of ships, I really like the detail on this fine vessel. I remember the Cod War, with the Royal Navy and the Icelandic Navy going head to head in the Atlantic. 5*

Elaine Hancock from Olney, United States

Such a powerful looking ship. It looks like it could go fast through the water. It is quite impressive!

@Elaine Hancock: I think it needs to be sturdy to patrol the sea around Iceland!
