HOOGAARS ARM 16

Post NL gives by this miniature sheet:
Arnemuiden The five identical stamps with a value denomination of 1 for mail within the Netherlands feature typical objects and buildings found in the town of Arnemuiden: the Hoogaars ARM 16 (pictured), a church bell (pictured) and the Dutch Reformed Church’s astronomical clock (pictured), with the sea below. Pictured at the bottom is an image of a cod. The image is spread across the stamp and the back of the sheet. The top and bottom parts of the stamp are linked together by a traditional fishing net in a contemporary bright colour. The background of the stamp sheet contains images of various Arnemuiden landmarks, including an anchor, a stone lion with a shield featuring Arnemuiden’s coat of arms, the front wall of the station, a historic flag of the city, the Kotter ARM 44 NEELTJE JANNETJE, a light buoy, the historic shipyard with its surrounding houses, the statue of the female fish pedlar, the Nooitgedacht windmill and a typical Arnemuiden prawn basket. The strip of sea pictured on the stamps has been extended horizontally across the sheet like a tile panel. In the body of water shown at the bottom, we see the cod in the bottom stamp as well as other species of fish. Pictured from left to right: a mussel, a herring and a North Sea prawn. The font used is Oxide by FontFont, designed by Christian Schwartz (2010).

The “hoogaars” ARM 16 depict on the stamp, could not find anything, only that she was fishing early in the 1900s
The “hoogaars” is used as a cargo and fishing vessel in Belgium and the Netherlands from the 16th century. Now only used as a yacht. The “hoogaars” used in Arnemuiden (in the longitudinal direction) had a curved bottom and a steeper stem than the other “hoogaars” in the Netherlands, which allows the type a higher bow and did give the type more sheer. She took less water than the other types and was lighter and faster.The type was first rigged with a sprit rig later replaced with a gaff rig (as seen on stamp). She had no bun. Carried a drop rudder which moved up along the tiller when the craft grounded.
From 1860 the hoogaars at Arnemuiden was mostly used for shrimp fishing and the oyster cultivation.
Most of the “hoogaars” of Arnemuiden were built on the shipyard of Meerman at Arnemuiden and were about thirteen meters long and 4.3 meters wide.

ALIDA stern trawler

Post NL gives by this miniature sheet:
The Beautiful Netherlands 2016 stamp sheet: “Scheveningen” is based on the layout and perforation used for the Beautiful Netherlands series since 2005. The five identical stamps with a value denomination of 1 for mail within the Netherlands feature typical properties and buildings found in the town of Scheveningen, including the fish auction building with its striking silhouette (pictured), the lighthouse (pictured) and the trawler SCH 6 ALIDA with the sea below, showing a beacon which in reality is on one of the jetties. Pictured at the bottom is an image of a herring. The image is spread across the stamp and the back of the sheet. The top and bottom parts of the stamp are linked together by a traditional fishing net in a contemporary bright colour. The background of the stamp sheet contains images of various Scheveningen landmarks, including a seagull perched on a scaffold pole, a 1930s home at the centre of the harbour area, the barrel monument, Panorama Mesdag overlooking the town of Scheveningen, Paviljoen Von Wied in the dunes, the obelisk for the later King William I’s arrival in 1813, the Scheveningen Pier and Gerard Bakker’s fisherman’s wife statue. The strip of sea pictured on the stamps has been extended horizontally across the sheet like a tile panel. In the water at the bottom, we see both the herring shown on the bottom stamp and other fish species: from left to right, two mackerels, three herrings, a brown crab and a plaice. The font used is Oxide by FontFont, designed by Christian Schwartz (2010).

PYROSCHAPHE paddle steamer 1784

The image shown is of a model made by de Jouffroy in 1784 to show the French Science Academy the engine and paddle wheels used on the PYROSCAPHE. The model is now in the National Maritime Museum in Paris.
PYROSCAPHE was an early experimental steamship built by Marquis de Jouffroy d'Abbans in 1783. The first demonstration took place on 15 July 1783 on the river Saône in France. After the first demonstration, it was said that the hull had opened up and the boiler was letting out steam, faults common in early steamboats. In this case, it seems to have been easily repaired as the boat was said to have made several trips up and down the river. A month later, on 19 August, the boat carried several passengers who signed a witness protocol for a successful journey.
The PYROSCAPHE was propelled by a double-acting steam machine and sidewheels, and was therefore a paddle steamer.
Specifications
(These figures are somewhat dubious, see Talk:PYROSCAPHE.)
• Length: 45,2 m/148 ft 6 in
• Beam: 4,5 m/14 ft 10 in
• Displacement: 163t
• Complement: 3

08 May 1957 launched under the name THALA DAN.
Tonnage 2.000 gross, 1.033 net, 2.130 dwt., dim. 246.6 x 45.0 x 24.0ft., bpp. 215.0.
One 7 cyl. 2 S.C.SA diesel engine, type B&W 735-VBF-62, 1.970 bhp., speed 12 knots. One controllable pitch-propeller. The engine was manufactured by Burmeister & Waine Maskin- og Skibsbuggeri of Copenhagen. Bunker capacity 400 tons. Consumption 8 tons a day.
Fitted out with a crow-nest, and from the crow-nest the vessel was maneuverable when sailing in ice.
Accommodation for 36 passengers.
Built as a polar/research/supply vessel, specially strengthened for Arctic and Antarctic service. She was fitted out with an icebreaker stern, ice fins and ice cutter. ( Ice fins protect the propeller and rudder whilst moving ahead, and a ice cutter or ice knife gives the same protection when working astern.) Carried two DUKW amphibious vehicles and a Beaver aircraft. ( I think later replaced by an helicopter.)
Three hold, with a capacity of 1800 cubic meter, also a reefer compartment for the storage of 139 cubic meter frozen food and 40 cubic meter chilled food.
Nine derricks with a lifting capacity between 2 and 30 tons.

13 Oct. 1957 sailed for her maiden voyage from the shipyard to the Antarctic via Australia on time charter for the National Antarctic Research Expedition.
07 December 1957 she sailed from Australia for her first voyage to Macquarie Island about 1000 miles south of Tasmania. She was during the Antarctic summer season chartered by the Australian Anare Shipping, for supplying the Antarctic bases at Casey, Mawson and the summer bases at Commonwealth Bay.
During the Northerly summer seasons she was mostly used in the trade to Greenland.
In the 1959 season on 16 January 1959 she struck a rock off Davis and got holed, oil was flowing out. Temporary repairs were carried out at Davis station, before she returned to Australia for repairs. The submerged rock, which she struck, is now called the Thala Rock, and the rock is in a position of about 68 33S 77 52E.
Later also chartered by the French and used for the supply of there basis at Dumont D’Urville and the French Antarctic possessions. (I could not find out of she was chartered together with the Australian, or that she was only that voyages chartered by the French.)

Her passenger accommodation increased to 54. Crew 30.
Her open bridge wings enclosed. Cargo lifting gear increased, and fitted out with a powerful radio station to reach the Northerly radio stations from the Antarctic. A helicopter deck was fitted on the stern.
