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.
