|The ship could have been 50 - 90 years old.
It had a wooden hull, thick oak planks, like the
VOC-ships. But it also had a steel cabin and
probably a diesel engine. It had a kitchen with a
modern coffee machine. Roberta discovered a shelf
with books. "Can you hand me some?" I
asked. Roberta tried and said "No, they're
all wet, soft and spongy - I don't really want to
touch them again."
