  1. Last weekend me, Maxim I, Legostone, TitusV and Sebeus I got together. To start off the Saturday we visited the replica of VOC ship the Batavia. To me this is the most beautiful replica ship in the world. It is build according the way they did things back in the day. It has no motor and can actually sail.

Batavia visit (4) by Captain Green Hair - don't just favour, comment!, on Flickr The stern, you can clearly see they are doing maintenance. Even the scafolds are somewhat historically correct. You don't see that every day. Batavia visit (5) by Captain Green Hair - don't just favour, comment!, on Flickr Discussing how to make stuff in Lego at the bow.

Batavia visit (6) by Captain Green Hair - don't just favour, comment!, on Flickr At the wharf they are also building a replica of the 7 provinces, the flagship of Michiel de Ruyter, Sadly we learned that they had to stop work due to the lack of funds and volunteers. We took the guided tour which was very educational. I thank our guide for all the information, I actually learned a few things. After the visit of the Batavia it was time to build! I hosted a little competition called Ship Build Off #1. The idea is that everybody had to have a ''finished'' ship by Sunday 21:00h. They had to make their own pictures and send them to me. So we got busy: Work by Captain Green Hair - don't just favour, comment!, on Flickr And we got some progress: Progress by Captain Green Hair - don't just favour, comment!, on Flickr Like any good contest there is a prize. In this contest the builders can win this trophy I made (well, it still needs sails and so): Trophee by Captain Green Hair - don't just favour, comment!, on Flickr Entry nr. 1 is the Tuna King: Tuna King (2) by Captain Green Hair - don't just favour, comment!, on Flickr Tuna King (1) by Captain Green Hair - don't just favour, comment!, on Flickr Tuna King (3) by Captain Green Hair - don't just favour, comment!, on Flickr Entry nr. 2 is the HMS Tribute: HMS Tribute (1) by Captain Green Hair - don't just favour, comment!, on Flickr HMS Tribute (2) by Captain Green Hair - don't just favour, comment!, on Flickr HMS Tribute (3) by Captain Green Hair - don't just favour, comment!, on Flickr Entry nr. 3 is the Piercing Flame: The Piercing Flame (1) by Captain Green Hair - don't just favour, comment!, on Flickr received_10210678542551190 by Captain Green Hair - don't just favour, comment!, on Flickr The Piercing Flame (3) by Captain Green Hair - don't just favour, comment!, on Flickr And, well... nr. 4 didn't really get the concept of building a ship so we'll just call it HMS Whatever: HMS Whatever (2) by Captain Green Hair - don't just favour, comment!, on Flickr HMS Whatever (1) by Captain Green Hair - don't just favour, comment!, on Flickr HMS Whatever (3) by Captain Green Hair - don't just favour, comment!, on Flickr So please vote for your favourite in the poll which will be open untill Wednesday the 29th of March, midnight Dutch time.
