Excavated in the Zuyderzee, the planking of this hull was of typical cog construction. The three bottom strakes on each side of the central plank were set edge-to-edge; all the others overlapped the ones below them. The seven strakes on each side were 4.5 cm thick; the sheer strake was 5.3 to 5.7 cm. thick. Long and short arms of floor timbers were alternated.1
