Norwegian term or phrase: Fôringsbåt / arbeidsbåt
Is there a difference between these two terms? I understand "foringsbat" as a "guide boat". Is that the same as an arbeidsbat?

agree  Per Bergvall: Except it works just as well without the accent. While fôr can be mistaken for 'for', no such risk exists with foring.
