Dutch War Ship

This was seen at the Maritime Museum, which features not just Malay sea going crafts but also other vessels that saw action in the nearby waters.

I see that these two chaps were tied to the bow so they could not escape their duties.
Ayush Basu: How dreadful smile Thanks for the visit Chad

It must have been a hard life often sailing into uncharted waters in search of the New World.
Ayush Basu: I cannot imagine since even a gently pitching bumboat makes me rather nauseous.
I can imagine Astrid on board a ship like this grin
Ayush Basu: Then perhaps you may prepare yourself for Ginnie to sail through a minute later in frigate grin Thanks for the visit Bill
Not much protection form the enemy.
Ayush Basu: I know nothing about warships but I gather at one point the Dutch had a mighty navy.

That is a lovely looking vessel, very nicely framed.
Ayush Basu: Thank you very much CP
Amazing that people used to fight in these things, isn't it?
Ayush Basu: Amazing for sure. Hard to fathom what would motivate people back then to embark on such voyages and battles.

Your composition adds a lot to the pleasure of looking at this craft, Ayush.
Ayush Basu: Thank you Ray. The driving factor for me was to minimize the reflection off the glass pane

A trading vessel presumably
Ayush Basu: The sign accompanying the display said a war ship but if you're referring to the lack of visible canons then I agree with you

Shallow draft perfect for island hopping but not crossing the ocean. Suspect it was built locally.
Ayush Basu: Thanks for the input BD, I wouldn't have known

the blues are setting off the colour of the sails nicely
Ayush Basu: Yes, I felt the same as well smile
