Hi All,

I took these when I was in Helsinki at the beginning of September, had them up on my website since October, an just remembered to stick them here now.

Here is some information if I recall correctly: It was built in 1898. During the 1917 Russian Revolution, its crew became drunk and accidentally sunk it by sailing it into a rock off of Estonia. It was raised in 1921? and continued to serve. It's open as a restaurant, and you can enjoy a sit down meal on the top deck or inside the hull itself. Its docked in downtown Helsinki just up the road from the cruise ship terminal and the entrance to the Baltic.

And Finally: A few photos of Helsinki Harbour

Enjoy :D

There are more photos from Helsinki on my website. As always, feel free to look around.

Alan ... Thanks for sharing ...

Maybe just perspective but the mast appears shorter than
the few I've seen over here ...

I am no expert on lightships, but I believe you are correct.
