Date Added: 08 April 2020

Haringbuis 17e century. It is the follow up from the Haringbuis 16e century. The rigging is almost the same and so are the sails. The fitst and second mast is going down when they started fishing. But the great change is the ratio of the hull. From the 16e century is was 1:3.3 to 1:3.7 and from the 17e century it was 1:4 to 1:4.7. The reason is that the ships had to be greater is because the hearing was swimming funder on in the see so the hull had to be bigger and a longer ship is sailing better. The ship is built in two parts, a upper part and a under part. The panorama shows the situation when the ship is fishing whit the nets. The small sail at the back was taking care of the fact that the nets are straight after each other. The ship was sailing slowly backwards. The nets good be about 4 km long. The ship is 102 mm by 26 mm wide and 82 mm high. The bottle is 206 mm long by 140 mm wide and has a 33 mm bottle neck.
