ENGELENBAK

Engelenbak’s Maiden Voyage

Being a busy businessman, dad decided that mother and his four daughters should take Engelenbak to Friesland on its maiden voyage ... without him!!!

Not having spent anytime on the boat itself, he sc0006cf4egot the boat loaded up with supplies and sent the family off on their journey while he was working. Little did he think about the lack of skills or mechanical support on board.

So after a couple of days, the 1920s engine decided it needed a vacation too and quit ... on a busy river. Needless to say this caused a bit of a stir aboard ...

In due time the boat ended up in the village of Grouw in the province of Friesland. I am pretty certain that Engelenbak never left the dock after that journey.
