A real work boat De stoere pilot botter Texelstroom (built 1906) is kept in service by an enthusiastic group of trained volunteers. The ship was thoroughly restored around the turn of the century and largely restored to its original state. It is still clear to see that the Texelstroom was built for pilots at the time to pilot ships off the coast of Groningen and Den Helder, it is a real workboat with watertight bulkheads and a sail with "Pilotage" in all its glory.
