The Batavia

The replica of the ‘Batavia’ in full sail

The above are all parts of the rigging of the ‘Batavia’ which had to be replaced to make it safe to actually sail with. The crow’s nests in the last two pictures are before and after, the left being the old one and the right the one I build. All of these items are build by myself, it was one big project that was allocated to me.

Me on my finished work. I also worked on the jib-tree itself with a whole team of others. The jib-tree was build out of different segments of wood glued together to make it strong enough for sailing.
