Ok , folks, after much ado and encouragement, I have been busy with the beautiful VOC Batavia. This ship is close to my heart , as I am from Dutch parents, yet born in Australia. I have personally seen the replica in Lelystad. The history of this ship is extraordinary, the story behind it is without peers. Aside the replica, there are museums in Perth and Geraldton in Western Australia, I have been to both, have read 3-4 books on the history. Anyway, let's just say I'm excited, thank you Heinrich, you have brought that out. There's not that much that I have done and I'm packing up to sell my house but I would just like to share what I have here. More to come. I do really love this hobby and everyone on this site is pure gold. Cheers to everyone.
