From sailing freighter to tugboat: maritime heritage on Lekkodagen Wijk bij Duurstede

From sailing freighter to tugboat maritime heritage on Lekkodagen Wijk

Vice-chairman of the Lekko Days, Albert Dekker, points to the depth sounder on one of the ships that have already arrived in port. “1.2 meters below the keel, so between the ship and the bottom. On this ship, for example, we have a draft of one meter. And of course you also want to have some space under the ship when you are sailing, so it gets tricky. Look you have ships with a draft greater than ours, so they can’t come more than anyway.”
