Fisherman Sverre L. Flem told Norway's NRK radio that the 50-foot whale started putting the moves on his 34-foot boat last week. The whale rubbed against the boat, and then started what seemed to be a courtship dance. "I've never seen anything like it, and I started fishing as a small boy," said Flem, a 78-year-old fisherman from the Sunnmore district of western Norway. Until he spotted the whale's tail, Flem initially thought his boat had collided with a submarine, he said.
