Hammocks inside VOC-ship Amsterdam

The sailors manning the cannons didn't have beds to sleep on. Instead they rested on hammocks like these.

The original Dutch East Indiaman 'Amsterdam' sailed its maiden voyage on 1749-01-08, but the unlucky ship sank merely 18 days later along the coast of England during a bad storm. This Amsterdam seen here is a full-size replica completed in 1990.
