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.

Sailing down the locks on 29th August 2008

These pictures were taken in Bézier on 29th August 2008 at 'Les 9 écluses'. They show the whole trip of the ship going down 9 locks.

During the trip, the lock was exclusivly used by this ship. When she had passed all locks, the yachts could continue to make use of the system.
