Internal view of the ship looking forward.
The hull is all framed up amd staging has been
erected on the inside for the shipwrights to
fair the frames and fit the beam shelf.
The staging on the outside of the hull follows
the curve of the ships sheer and rises to about
5m above the floor in the stern. The framing
of the stern rises right to the roof of the shed.
The Dutch Swing College Band, who have been
around almost as long as the VOC, visited the
Duyfken yard and played three bars of
"Waltzing Matilda" for the media.
