Ahoy Paul,

I've made already about a 100's Cd-r's and sended them to all over the world: Cananda-USA-South America-Africa-Asia-NZ-Australia and lots of countries in Europe, never asked a "penny/dime" for it, but the costs of sending them for free are nowaday much more expensive, then a while ago, and to be honest to say, some even didn't thank me for that or gave an email that they had received it.So I will think it over to start copy/sending again, and will let you know.

Ahoy Bruce,

Indeed a very good site with lots of nice postcards/posters;
Ours is just made for fun and as we started 2 yrs ago to collect them wherever we found them, in the beginning only Dutch ship/company folders/brochures/posters, and now you can see a "small collection" of what we've collected.

Hello Ruud:
I looked at your posting about the poster site early in the morning and I guess the cogs in my head were not meshing as they should. I didn't realize at the time that that huge site was your own personal work.
I took a quick look and it's fascinating, especially for someone like me who really enjoys the historic. I've got it bookmarked and next Sunday morning, with a cup or two of coffee, will enjoy exploring it.
The more I use the internet the more I appreciate people like you who take the time and effort to share their expertise with others. That surely makes the web an interesting place.
I was wondering if you know Willem van der Leek, another Dutch ship enthusiast and an ex NASM man?
Best,
Bruce C.

Ahoy Bruce and Paul,

Yes that was a lot of work to collect them, searching the internet and load/re-organize them, but we do get a lot of fine responses as yours, and that's where it's all about, shearing one love,all about ships!!!!!
It might take a couple of more cup of coffee/tea Bruce, I know someone who spend a whole week, to watch them all(*)) I've heard that name before[Willem van der Leek], maybe we've meet each other at some reunion or fair, the name sounds to me very well known, but I can't place it for the moment.I do have a lot of friends sharing the same hobby, and still know lots of seaman from company's where I've sailed.
Thanks again for your fine commands(Applause)

What a credit:as someone said 'a labour of love' if you ever decide to make CD's let me know: I will certainly be in the queue to purchase. By the way thanks for the 'birthday greetings': much appreciated. Peter
