af Chapman


Earlier I showed you some rigging.

Here is the whole ship.

Seemingly it entered service as the Dunboyne in 1888 and once carried passengers between Ireland and Australia. During World War II it was a Swedish Navy barracks ship.

Since 1949, the af-Chapman , as it is now known, has been used as a youth hostel.

Shortly after this picture was taken, it was towed away for renovation, but is due to return later this year.
