Maritime Museum of Ushuaia Argentina Eendracht Model
One of many precisely built model ships on display at the Maritime Museum of Ushuaia (Museo Marítimo de Ushuaia). This is a model of the Eendracht, a sailing ship of the hulk type used by Dutch explorers Willem Schouten and Jacob Le Maire in their voyage of 1615-1616. With their distinctive clinker-built round hulls and sterns, Dutch hulks were well-suited to carrying cargo and requiring relatively few crew, but were poorly suited to use in hot tropical waters where the methods of manufacture meant that gaps opened between the wooden planks under the heat of tropical sun and the ships leaked.
