MS Hornblower
The Hornblower is my new project: an Groningse snik from 1903.
 
MJ Escapade
In November 2010 I bought a bakdekkruiser. She was sold in 2011.
MS Frantsis
The Frantsis is a beurtschip. We (a neighbour and me) bought her in May 2010 as a small hobby project. I discontinued the project in 2011.

Humber Keels
The Humber Keel was a type of sail craft used for inshore and inland cargo transport around Hull and the River Humber, in the United Kingdom, through the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

The dimensions of these craft influenced the gauge, or width, of inland waterways created or modernised during that period. In comparison to the widespread use of the Narrowboat standard, far fewer inland waterways were designed to accommodate the larger Humber Keel gauge vessels. This standard is still used on associated waterways today. (Source: Wikipedia)
