Hosted by The Filey Bay Research Group
On entering a large anonymous single story building, the members of the Initiative were faced with a concrete floor inside the doorway upon which were placed various containers with timber artefacts in them undergoing preservation. Behind these was a large coffer dam containing part of one side of De Braak enclosed by polythene sheeting which was hung from the ceiling to the floor of the dam. The sheeting was parted to reveal the remains of De Braak carefully undergoing spray treatment by Charles Fithian and his staff. The De Braak is a artefact of wonderful proportions and has lain there since its recovery in 1986, shown below are some of the pictures of the hull.
