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.

The body of the skipper was found on 05 May 1918 by the ARM 28 in their net and transported to Vlaardingen, his son was never found.

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.

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

IMO / GUVERNOREN and MONT BLANC

Click image to view full size
Built as cargo and livestock carrier by Harland & Wolff, Belfast for the White Star Lines.
01 January 1889 launched under the name RUNIC.
Tonnage 4.639 gross, 3.122 net, dim. 131.27 x 13.77 x 9.14m.
Powered by one 3-cyl triple expansion steamengine, manufactured by the ships builder, 424 nhp., speed 13 knots.
1889 Completed.

21 February 1889 sailed for her maiden voyage from Liverpool to New York. She and her sister the CUFIC were the first livestock carriers of the White Star Lines.
Carried general cargo outward and returned home with around 1000 life cattle.

1895 Sold to the West India & Pacific SS Co., renamed TAMPICAN.
31 December 1899 transferred to F. Leyland & Co., not renamed.
The same year reboilered, still in the service from Liverpool to New York.
1912 Sold to H.E.Moss & Co., Liverpool, not renamed.
Immediately sold to South Pacific Whaling Co., Christiania (now Oslo), renamed in IMO.
Converted in a whale oil tanker for Antarctic whaling service.

During the First World War was she chartered by the Belgian Relief Commission.
06 December 1917 when she was in ballast steaming across Halifax Bay, Nova Scotia, Canada outward bound with destination New York came she in collision with the French ship MONT BLANC around 08.45 a.m., which was loaded with ammunition and inward bound.
The IMO struck the MONT BLANC abreast of the forward hold, causing some barrels of the 35-ton benzol, carried as deck cargo, to ignite the picric acid in the hold below.
The crew of the MONT BLANC fully aware of the dangers of the cargo on board abandoned the vessel, leaving the blazing MONT BLANC drifting in the stream. The fire attracted many spectators to the waterfront, and she drifted into Halifax’s Pier 6.
Some vessels tried to put a towline on board the burning vessel, and to tow her away from the pier, but at
09.00 the MONT BLANC erupted causing the greatest man made explosion before the Atomic bomb. The blast was felt 120 miles away.
Most part of the densely populated suburb of Richmond was flattened, and within a 16-mile radius 1.630 buildings were destroyed. Only two vessels were lost the MONT BLANC and a wooden schooner the LOLAR, all other damaged vessels in port were later repaired.
Officially 1.963 people were killed, with 9.000 injured and 199 blinded by flying glass, although the casualties aboard the ships in the harbour bring the death toll closer to 3.000.
The captain and the pilot and 5 of de crew of 41 on board the IMO were killed during the explosion, she was hurled across the stream, with most of her upper structure ripped away, and grounded.
After four months the IMO was refloated and towed to New York for repair.
1918 She was rebuilt in a whale factory ship, renamed in GUVERNOREN.

30 November 1921 during heavy fog she ran aground on the rocks at Cow Bay, two miles off Cape Carysfort on East Flakland, all crew were saved.
Salvage attempts were made but the GUVERNOREN was not refloated, and salvage work was halted on 03 December 1921, and she was abandoned to the sea.
Today the wreckage is still there from the waterline up, and lying on her starboard side.


The other ship on fire as seen on the stamp must be the MONT BLANC. The design is wrong, the fire started in the forward hold, and not as seen on the stamp on the afterpart of the vessel.

Built as a cargo vessel under yard No 460 by Sir Raylton Dixon & Co., Ltd. Middelsbrough, U.K. for the Soc. Générale de Transport Maritimes á Vapeur, Marseille.
Launched under the name MONT BLANC.
Tonnage 3.279 gross, 2.251 net, dim. 320 x 44.8 x 15.3ft.
Powered by a triple expansion steam engine 247 nhp. Speed 9.5 knots, one propeller.
June 1899 delivered to owners.

1906 Sold to E. Anquetil, Rouen, France.
1915 Sold to G Petit, Rouen.
1916 Sold to Cie Générale Transatlantique, St Nazaire.

06 December 1917 on a voyage from New York to Halifax under command of Captain Aime Le Medec loaded with a cargo of around 5.000 ton high explosives, she came in collision with the outward bound Norwegian IMO, both ships were under pilot control, and there was plenty of room and it visibility was good.
When both ships approached each other there was a lot of confusion, and a collision happened.
After some barrels of benzol loaded on deck of the MONT BLANC ignited, the crew on board aware of the dangers of the cargo abandoned the vessel and rowed hard for the shore, and just after she landed about 20 minutes later the MONT BLANC did exploded at 09.05 a.m. and she was disintegrated into a mass of wreckage.

Only one men of the crew of the MONT BLANC was lost.
