Hi Heinrich,Good luck with the research. I f I were you I would regard Witsen and Van Yk as primary sources.
Dear MaartenFor the use of the reconstruction I will use delftship. This is an excellent tool for creating your hull shape in 3D. You can freely download it here if you want to use it.
Ab Hoving provided me with his fluit models he made in Delftship and one of those was his interpretation of the ghost ship by using just the dimensions and witsens proportions.

I used the model of Ab, which saved me hours and hours of drawing (Thx @Ab Hoving ) to reshape the hull to fit the drawing contours.
For this I imported and rescale the drawings into delftship.
Then you see that the shape of the ship is not completely following the drawings from the 3d scanning so the hull needs reshaping to fit the drawings.
See below the side view and top view showing Ab s design againt the Eriksson drawings. The decks are visible.

The next step is to fit the drawings Ab made towards the drawings from Eriksson which were made from the 3D scanning of the wreck.
That I will post next time as I am still working on this.
G'day Maarten, you certainly know how to pick interesting subjects to build, I think that this one will be very interesting, a few year's back I was reading on the net about how they built them, it will be great to follow your build, but it might be a struggle to get a seat,I wont have anything useful to add but happy to watch and learn.
As said she was the Jennifer Lopez of the ships .Very interesting. She is a portly little girl, heh? Lots of round curves. Assuming her flat bottom design was necessary, due to shallow home harbor waters? Wonder how that affected her sailing in open waters.
Thanks for sharing Maarten.
Hi Maarten.Next step is to reshape the top of the ship.
There are no lines plans available so this is something I will prepare myself. Partly from the Eriksson drawings for the top part of the ship and with Witsen, Van Eijk and Ab Hoving for the bottom part of the ship.
