kees de mol Posted October 18, 2014 Share #1 Posted October 18, 2014 Hi all, When I went looking for a new ship to build, I got a picture from my grandfather who looked through the window of a ship's bridge in his younger years. Unfortunately my grandfather deceased at a very young age. It seemed beautiful to build a ship where he sailed on. An uncle of mine then indicated they would like to have a model of the 49 KW, Antje in 1959. My grandfather has been a fisherman on this ship and my uncle went with him several times as a kid. I have nothing promised to him but I started to look for information. First, I came across a book with the following information to N.V. Viss. Me. Kennemerland Dageraad Woubrugge Year 1959 43,96 x 7:34 x 3.54 Capacity 291 Brt 07.18.1959 trial and transfer 1969 made suitable for beam trawling 1972 TX 46 Antje eig. P v.d. Vis Sold in 1974 to Argentina is San Lucas Unfortunately, there was further found little information on hand to be so I'm on several facebook pages and forums calls going to do if someone had more information, pictures or drawings. Immediately there were people who wanted to help me. They often had not the requested information but they knew people who had sailed on the ship. Unfortunately, many people already deceased but I managed to find a few people out after a lot of phone calls and mail, and some also had pictures. At the wharf The Dageraad During the trial I finally managed to get to 32 original photographs of the KW 49 and I am very happy with it. Luckily I met a man who had sailed on the VL 16, a ship that was similar to the KW 49 He had a lot of pictures for me and even in color. The VL 16] The TX46 (formerly KW 49) popeye the sailor, yvesvidal, mtaylor and 10 others 13 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
