Peat harvesting and distribution

The use of peat as fuel has a long tradition in Holland and northern Germany. The excavated peat was dried in the harvesting areas, cut and then brought to customers. Until the 19th century, canal ships were used for this that could also be poled when there was no or adverse wind. The spritsail rigging was advantageous because the sprit could also be used as a crane for taking on cargo.



The canal ship model, photos, description and dimensions

The canal ship shows the characteristics of a flat-bottomed ship, the type that was used on rivers and canals for cargo transport. The rigging is worked out in detail with sails. The devices for using the sprit as a crane are all shown.

There are more pictures, several views of the entire ship model taken from all directions, and several closer views of hull, deck and rigging. Click images to enlarge!
