These Panoramas allow you to view a full 360⁰ panoramic scene. They were created in 2000 using an older media format known as QTVR. They can be viewed on most computers where QuickTime (an Apple media viewer) is installed. QuickTime is generally preloaded on a Mac and is free to download and install on a Windows machine or PC from the Apple website.
The ability to view these Panoramas will vary depending on your computer and installed software but for most visitors, if you click on the Panorama and use your mouse, trackpad or arrow buttons on your keyboard you should be able to view the full panorama.
You may have QuickTime already installed on your computer but if not, you can download the latest version of QuickTime here.

Duyfken has been designed as an authentic replica. Installation of modern machinery and extra ballasting to comply with current
survey requirements were undertaken after initial sailing trials.
Duyfken performs well under sail. She easily makes 4 knots
in moderate conditions and frequently reaches 7 knots.
"Planks were pre-bent
to shape over an open fire. Our shipwrights learned this archaic
technique, bending the 60mm thick planks which form the lower planking.
At first it seemed very difficult; probably too many levers, pulleys,
fulcrums and weights were used. The shipwrights eventually just
let the planks droop slowly under their own weight over a slow fire.
In a good week the team under Bill Leonard would fit a full port
and starboard strake of planks."
