I am off for vacation, so to pass the coming weeks, a few great pictures I took this winter. Many people wonder: what happens to all those Gezonken Bootjes featured on this site. Well, once in a while, the agency responsible for the canals of Amsterdam, called Binnenwaterbeheer, lifts all wrecks, takes them to a secret location and destroys them. One day I caught Binnenwaterbeheer in the act of removing some fine gezonken bootjes. What a shame. This is Part I, more to follow in the coming weeks.

The orange ship is Binnenwaterbeheer, just behind it the barge the gezonken bootjes get dumped into
