Hi all!
For everyone interested in the naval history there is an excelent web - 17th century shipyard, volunteer workers welcome. :lol:
Oh, I've been there. Great big fun!
Don't forget clicking on the link to the Dutch site ('nederlands' on the top red banner), it has many more images than the English site...
You guys from Netherland are really active! I admire it. I have found another replica under construction 56 gun ship of the line De Delft. Fantastic!
Oh yes! I still have to go see that one. Even better since my great (*X) grandfather commanded one of her sisterships.

Wow Confusedhock: ! What was the ship's name?
It was De Brakel, also of the Meuse Admiralty, iirc of 74 guns.
Interesting! I'm going to look into the William James' Naval history if there is any mention Smile .

If you ever visit the Bataviawerf, do not forget to walk to the nearby NISA, the Dutch National Centre for Maritime History, [url:rvfmugme]http://www.bataviawerf.nl/en/nsc.html[/url]. It is nice to see how the reconstruction workers are active, and hear one of them explain that he doesn't like "that recent avalanche of Roman ships", because there are so many far more interesting medieval ships.

Here [url:rvfmugme]http://www.livius.org/a/1/germania/woerden_7_lelystad.JPG[/url] you see the Woerden-7 waiting for preparation.
