You know its summer

Battleships




Yep.. this is where Jack and Rose "flew"
in Titanic the movie


Some sampan/canoe that is carved from a single tree
and strings made with human hair


Diesel engine for a ship


Duyfken (1606)
its a small Dutch merchant ship that sailed from Holland to Indonesia
during the Spice Trade era
You can say its kinda like Australia's Christopher Columbus and Santa Maria


Some of the parts are being re-painted/re-constructed
These are the Falcon stands


Ok.. this mini Duyfken (Little Dove) tour
costs an additional $3
but its totally worth it!
Its like the best part of the maritime museum


This is where they cook and stuff


Dutch maps were the best in their time
if you can see, there're 2 aboriginal message sticks on top
these are like the "passports" to aboriginal territories


Someone's watching you.. Always!


Some rum and stuff.. I guess..


Axe Gang 斧头帮?


Spices
Nutmeg was a rare commodity
One piece of nutmeg could buy you a big house with 2 servants






An enchanted cursed mask from Indonesia




One of the refurbished Falcon or Falconet


Pretty wicked stuff that can fire
1 pound round shots and grapeshots




HMAS DIAMANTINA
The world last river class frigate
carried Japanese high command Lt. Gen Kanda and Vice Admiral Baron Samejima to surrender at Torokina during WWII
Hiding behind is the red CLS 2 Carpentaria
sorta like a mobile lighthouse vessel


Anti-submarine torpedo


We broke into the command center
and pretended to radio


ST Forceful
ocean-going tugboat since 1926
it uses a steam engine kinda like a locomotive










HAPPY II
one of the smallest boats to sail across Pacific Ocean
confiscated from Howard Wayne Smith
due to his breach of tourist visa
