REHOBOTH ARM 16 hoogaars

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.

Thanks to Mr. D.v. Nieuwenhuijzen I got her name and when built.
She was built under the name REHOBOTH ARM 16 in 1911 for account of Skipper Lieven van Belzen in Arnemuiden.

15 February 1918 when the ARM 16 was fishing in the Oostgat she caught a mine in her net, the mine was taken carefully out of the net and anchored. A just passing Dutch torpedoboat was informed and she steamed to Vlissingen (Flushing) to inform the Dutch Navy Authorities there. The pilot boot No 14 under command of Captain Vader and equip to defusing mines was ordered to investigate and defuse the mine. When she arrived by the fishing vessel she took the ARM 16 in tow and went looking for the mine. The mine was found off Westkapelle. When the navy officer on board the pilot boot was transferred from the pilot boat to the ARM 16 the pilot boat hit a mine. The consequences were terrible, seven men were killed on board the pilot boat under which Captain Vader and the pilot boat was lost. Of the four men crew of the REHOBOTH, skipper Lieven van Belzen his son (17) Cornelis van Belzen and a deckhand Hendrik Marijs were killed, one crewmember and the navel officer were rescued..
The REHOBOTH ARM 16 was also lost that day, she sank.

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

BREADALBANE

tmp178.jpg
Click image to view full size
Built in 1843 as a wooden three masted ship, on the yard of Henderick & Rowan, Glasgow for account of McNeil & Co., Glasgow.
Tonnage 428 tons, dim. 107.7 x 24.4 x 18.2ft.
Bark rigged.
Delivered July 1843.

Built for the trade between the U.K and India.
26 March 1853, chartered by the British Government for three years as transport vessel.
22 May 1853 she sailed from London, under command of Capt. John McKenzie, for Baffin Bay in search for the lost Sir John Franklin expedition. Her ice master was George Sabiston, I can remember that even in the 1960s ships of the company I was sailing for used ice masters when they were loading in Greenland ports, the ice master or pilot is mostly a experienced captain who knows the waters and ice situation well in that area. On that voyage she had a crew of 20 (21other source) men including the master and ice master.


07 Oct. 1853 it was reported that she was lost, when her companion ship the PHOENIX arrived at Thurso, North Scotland. It was reported that on 21 August 1853 she was crushed by shifting ice and sank in 15 minutes off Beechey Island. The crew was saved by the PHOENIX.
19 October 1853 the rescued crew arrived at London.

The following is an excerpt from the August 21, 1853 journal entry by William H. Fawckner, Royal Navy Officer on the BREADALBANE.

About ten minutes past four a.m., the ice passing the ship awoke me, and the door of my cabin from the pressure opened: I immediately hurriedly put on my clothes, and on getting up found some hands on the ice, endeavoring to save the boats, but they were instantly crushed to pieces; they little thought, when using their efforts to save the boats, that the BREADALBANE was in so perilous a situation. I went foreward to hail the PHOENIX, for men to save the boats, and whilst doing so, the ropes by which we were secured parted, and a heavy nip took the ship making every timber in her creak, and the ship tremble all over. I looked in the main hold, and saw the beams given away; I hailed those on the ice and told them of our critical situation, they not for one moment suspecting it. I then rushed to my cabin, hauled out my portmanteau on the deck, and roared like a bull to those in their beds to jump out and save their lives. The starling effects on them might be more easily imagined than described. On reaching the deck those on the ice called out to me to jump over the side, that the ship was going over…

Everyone then abandoned the ship, with what few clothes they saved – some with only what they had on… The ship now began to sink fast, and from the time her bowsprit touched the ice, until her mastheads were out of sight, did not occupy above one minute and a half. It was a very sad and unceremonious way of being turned out of our ship. For the first time the first nip took her, until her disappearance, did not occupy more that fifteen minutes.
I, as well all the spectators of the last of BREADALBANE, was astonished at the rapid manner in which she went down… I can not easily imagine why the two missing Arctic ships (EREBUS and TERROR) have never been heard of, and it is but too probable in my mind, they were lost not many miles from my old vessel, and that all hands met with a watery grave.

On 13 August 1980 the hull of the BREADALBANE was rediscovered by a team of scientists in a position 74 41 N and 91 50W.

On the stamp, only her steering wheel is depict.

Re: BREADALBANE

Postby john sefton » Sun Jan 16, 2011 11:16 am

Extract from an article by J B Maclnnis National Geographic July 1983.
Far below the surface of the hostile sea, tomorrows technology unlocks the secrets of a long‑dead vessel.
She is BREADALBANE, a British Bark launched in 1843 and lost a decade later in the ice of Canadas Northwest Passage while aiding in the search for survivors of the ill‑fated Franklin Expedition. She is the nothernmost shipwreck ever discovered on the seafloor.
During his six long years of research and exploration for BREADALBANE Dr Maclnnis got his real first view of the vessel on 13 August 1980 in a ghostly side scan sonar image.
Entombed beneath six feet of surface ice and 340 feet of arctic water, the ship appeared far beyond human reach or ability to explore. Yet only 3 years later, in early May, a diver touched down on BREADALBANE'S deck in a revolutionary submersible destined to extend mans reach under the sea. Dubbed WASP for its resemblance to that insect, it is also referred to as “a submarine you wear''. The 'wheel of misfortune' that guided BREADALBANE in her final moments before storm driven ice punctured her hull and sent her to the bottom off Beechy Island in Canadas high Arctic was beautifully preserved by near‑freezing temperatures and an absence of pollution or marine borers, was promptly flown to the world famous Parks Canada conservation facility in Ottawa.
By some miracle all the 21 crewmen aboard managed to scramble to safety on the surrounding ice and joined an accompanying ship.
