As I expect there are a lot of 'water'-minded people here, I'm posting message below hoping some/anyone can give any trips or ticks :-)
I am planning to launch a water-related website. This will contain mainly pages about naval history, (world) explorations, sailing and so on, since I'm quite a pionate sailor myself. Other topics might be everything from Atlantis to Waterfalls, as long as it's got something to do with the theme 'Water'.
So here's my cry for help. I'm doing (amongst others) a page on Colin Archer. A name which is probably well-known to the majority of visitors here. Well at the least the Norwegian ones. I was able to find some Colin Archer info on the web, but these pages all seem to state the same things and talk about the same boats. The Venus, the Fram (of course), the Minnie, the Thor and the RS-1.
What I want to do is put up whatever I can find on OTHER Colin Archer boats, such as the Heijmen (sailed by Connie van Rietschoten) or the Storegut (Wilhelm Wolf). All information and pictures (if free to use) on ALL Colin Archer boats is welcome.
For those of you who got curious about my website, the url is http://www.croco.nl/ but beware, there'll be (hardly) anything there untill October 15th. Mail me if youwish to be notified when I go online.
All of you who might have any info, you can always contact me through my website or this forum. For future references, my site will include a search box so if the Colin Archer story is online, you can always find it through my search page.
