Viktoria info

Published by

Viktoria er en Åledrivkvase. En båd der tidligere blev brugt til åle fiskeri ved at drive for vinden med et drivvåd. Kvase henviser faktisk til et fartøj der bruges til transport af fisk. I dag bruges Viktoria primært til undervisning og lystsejlads.
Viktoria er bygget på Niels Christian Nielsens Baadebyggeri, på Fejø i 1904, til en fisker Gregers på Askø og er i dag hjemmehørende i Roskilde som en del af Vikingeskibsmussets bådsamling. Hun er bygget af lærketræ (bord) på egetræ (spander og køl). Niels Christian Nielsens Baadebyggeri blev grundlagt i 1878, men er lukket i dag. Det lukkede så sent som 1970. Fejø har i dag stadig sit næst ældste værft – Fejø Skibs- og Baadeværft, som blev stiftet af Christian Mortensen i 1889. Det drives i dag af 4. generation Mortensen – Henrik Mortensen.

Hun har stormast med gaffel storsejl, fok, klyver og topsejl. Der ud over en mesanmast med luggermesan.

Et åle drivvåd blev bundet (vådlinerne) på klyverbommen og drivbommen agter. Fok’en blev bakket og drivkvasen drev sidelens for vinden.

Johs fik en mail fra Birthe Milandt (Vikingeskibs mussets sejladstjeneste) hvor i hun roser de flotte billeder (tak Birthe) og fortæller at hendes farfar har været skipper på Viktoria: “Jeg har nok fortalt dig det før, men min farfar har engang været skipper på Viktoria ved en kapsejlads på Præstø Fjord, idet han var lokalkendt. Det har været engang i 1920-érne vil jeg tro. Den har vel dengang været hjemmehørende på Nyord, hvor min familie stammer fra. De var lodser derovre og min farfar var deres smed. Han boede i Stavreby på Jungshoved og sejlede to gange om ugen i sin egen Kragejolle over til Nuyord for at sko deres heste m.v, da de ikke havde deres egen smed.”.

Flere af den slags beretninger er MEGET velkommen!

    Hello,

    First, I apologize for writing in English. I hope that is OK.

    I had the distinct pleasure of living in your country for 10 months (2001-2002) while working with Odense Staalskibsværft. During that time I was introduced to the book “Danske Bådtyper” by Christian Nielsen. I have copies in Danish and English, and the CD-ROM from the Handels- og Søfartsmuseet.

    My hobby is model boat building. After many unfortunate delays, I am ready to start building models from this book. I plan to start with the åledrivkvase.

    My last communication was with Morten Gøthche at the Vikingeskibsmuseet, over three years ago (did I mention there were delays?). I don’t know if he is still there – I will try to renew that line of communication. My inquiries were probably written off (understandably) as not serious, since I let the matter drop. But I am very interested in doing what research I can (limited by time and distance) to make the best model possible – limited by the fact that it will be me buiding it 😉

    Distance, for a short time, will be less of an issue. I will be visiting friends in Odense as part of my holiday this year. I plan to visit the Vikingeskibsmuseet on 20 June.

    Is there anyone associated with this forum that would be interested in meeting with me? I would be thrilled by the opportunity to directly learn more about this boat type from the experts.

    I eagerly and respectfully await your reply!

    Warm regards,

    P.S. The web site I provided is to my current project, a Portuguese river cargo boat. Only the boat’s tender is under construction so far. With luck I’ll be adding an album for the åledrivkvase in short time.

    Hi Greg.

    No worries for writing in English. I am sorry that the site is only in Danish (for now).

    I understand from Morten Gøthche that he have already wrote you back, when I forwarded your blog comment. I have forwarded it to our guild chairman too (Johannes Ambjørnsen). I know he might get exited about a “åledrivkvase” project in the USA – any classic boat project anywhere for that matter.

    I wish you the best with your projects.

    Best regards.

    Juel

    Juel,

    Thank you for your kind and prompt reply. As moderator, do you have access to my email address? If so, feel free to pass it along to Mr. Ambjørnsen so that he may contact me directly.

    I am looking forward to my visit with great anticipation. Partly due to the 38°C weather we have been having these past few days 😉

    I should warn you, Mr. Gøthche, and Ambjørnsen that I am not a skilled, efficient, or experienced researcher. I simply hope to do the best I can to make my model as good as possible. It is also extremely interesting to learn the stories behind the boats we build. It gives a model so much more meaning. Perhaps I can write an article about the boat and my model that is worthy of being included in our Nautical Research Guild’s journal (http://thenrg.org). Given my limited ability to read Danish, perhaps someone would be interested in a collaborative effort. I’ll throw that out for consideration. Given the pace at which I am currently building models, there will be no rush 😉 !!!

    Cheers,

    Greg

    Hi Greg and members of ‘Viktorialaug’

    First of all, as an passionate åledrivkvase-sailor, I’m very impressed by this new site, that is by far the best I’ve come upon. Surely it’ll be a furture reference for our common interest.

    Greg, does the cd-rom from ‘Handels- og Søfartsmuseet’ contain pictures of the model of ‘De 13 Søskende’ made by the master himself? If not, then follow this link: (copy-paste 😉 )

    Jeg har længe ment, at der var en forbindelse mellem de tyske Zeesebåde og åledrivkvaserne Forleden var jeg i Kalvehave og så et billede af Zeesebåden Thorvald. Den blev bragt hertil af fisker Permin i 1870. Permin, som kom fra øend Zingst ved Rügen, var der for at fiske, men blev forelsket i kromandens datter og blev hængende. Han har formodentlig været en dygtig og flittig fisker. Hans båd, som er længere enn drivkvaserne har muligvis givet inspiration til de danske drivkvaser, hvilket jeg fik mundtligt bekræftet af Permins barnebarn Egon Permin i Kalvehave. Så drivkvasen er formodentlig en fordansket Zeeseboot. Hvorfor den blev kortere, kunne være interessant at finde ud af.
