This is an old post with small photos. I have better photos but more pressing things to work on, so if you're interested, comment below and I'll push it to the top of the "To Do" list.
Replica 16th century Dutch ship
Duyfken is a replica of a small ship sent by the Dutch East India Company to explore beyond the known. In 1606 they charted the Cape York Peninsula (the big, pointy bit in the top, right corner) on the first recorded voyage by Europeans to the Great South Land.
We'll start at the bow.
This is the figurehead. (See the heads on either side? Little people heads on the edge of the red corners.)
Now, onto the ship.
Looking foreward, I guess that is the forecastle. Note the hatch near their feet.
Eye level view.
Now, this is underneath. Over there on the right
is the firebox for cooking.
Port side. There are a lot of guns on this little ship.
Now looking aft, there's the main cabin and going up is a ladder
to the poop deck.
A bit closer. The curved skylight is over the main cabin.
This is the main cabin.
Looking back out to the deck.
The roof beams just touch the top of my head. Taller people had to bend over.
At the rear of the cabin, this door on the port side
opens into the captain's cabin.
Back in the other main cabin, on the starboard side, there's a ladder that leads down to here
where there is not much room. More guns. No head room.
From that space, shown at the top now, another ladder comes down
into a passageway (facing away from the ladder now), with two doors on either side,
that leads to the hold.
The hold is rather dark.
This ladder leads up the deck, through the hatch previously noted at the fore end of the ship.
This is the stern. There at the bottom is a gun port that opens into the little space between ladders.
