We’rrrrrrre back in Amsterdam and we’ve decided to move Gezonken Bootje to facebook. Go like our page

It’s been awhile since the last post… and it’s gonna take awhile before I’ll start blogging again. The reason being I left Amsterdam for a year (or so) to spend some time abroad. I definitely miss my gezonken bootjes. If you come across some good ones, feel free to e-mail me any pictures and I’ll post them here.

Het Spinnetje (little spider) is about to go down forever. This one is on the Leidsegracht and with all the tourist canal boats constantly going by and making lots of waves, a lot of bootjes are suffering. Don’t put your bootje in the Leidsegracht is what I say.

Gezonken Bootje has been out of commission for a while, mainly due to the fact that the SS Gezonken Bootje had gone down permanently. It was a sad story indeed. Somebody must have hit our proud Amsterdam ship, because it kept making water even when it wasn’t raining. After a lot of “hozen” I finally gave up and was so fed up with the whole thing that I neglected this fine blog as well. But not anymore, I got myself a new nifty, little camera which I can bring anywhere and I am back atl spotting gezonken bootjes everywhere.

BTW: If you happen to live in Amsterdam and have a cheap, sturdy and Amsterdam canal proof bootje for sale, please let me know. Or better still: support this blog by donating your (almost) gezonken bootje so we can scout the Amsterdam canals for your amusement.
