Type of barge

Bericht door Benbleier »

Hi all,
I have been trying to find more about my Barge. I got it imported to the UK, but the seller did not know anything about her previous owners, or the year it was made. I was told the hull might have been made in the '50s, but there are no numbers or anything on the hull as far as I can see. I want to know more about it if anybody can help me out, starting for the type of Barge. It seems to be a different shape to all kinds I know.

Any dimensions available? As far I can recognize it has been a motordekschuit. I do not know the English name for this vesseltype. See link for similar vessel. Regards, Klaas.

Of this type more than 1000 items were built. And sadly, not all very well registered. But if you can find any number, mark or registration, let us know.

Hi! it looks more like the second one but there is a metal line seems to be longer. Thank you for helping

P.S. Yes I know that we are really (too) close to this narrowboat in front of us right now!

I think it's a "Bekbok" with a closed front.

Fine. Problem solved.
I think it will be hard to find out the history.
Perhaps you can find something like this on the hull.

If you can, try to write down all you can find.
