‘de Hollands Glorie’ was bought midsummer 2009 and cause her strakes around her starboard waterline were damaged, she was a bargain. 7 years earlier she was put a shore with water in the bilge, when it started freezing, the water expanded becoming ice, creaking her belly.
NB: ‘de Hollands Glorie’ was built in 1964 for the ‘Royal Netherlands Yacht Club’, together with ‘de Hollands Roem’ & ‘de Hollands Hoop’ for educational purposes. The coincidence is: we are also members of that specific club.
Then after a while, we moved her from the yard in Edam to a yard in Haarlem(‘Op Zeeland’ yard), just cause of the benefit of the smaller distance from home to the project. Using her new purchased trailer, we found on the internet.
