Thats plain awesome Jan !
My suspicion was correct then, only question left is: was she a Tjalk or would she have been called something else?
The owners look rather proud of their new ship, although a crew of 6 for a ship hauling 210 tons would give todays accountants a nervous breakdown LOL

I have a 2 foot model of a Friese Tjalk of 1904 in my house :)

The correct name for the type is Koftjalk.More heavily built than a zeetjalk.They all belong to the family of the Tjalken,like jour Friese tjalk.
I envy you because of your model!
