The gilded weathercock has the shape of a ship

The difference between the ''free'' and the ''unfree'' boatmen/skipper is that the Free Skippers were allowed to sail on all waterways of the county of Flanders, including the Ghent inland waterways. However, the unfree boatmen had to transship their cargo at the city limits - they were not allowed to enter Ghent.

Raaike, wanneer iemand je er attent op maakt, dan zie je dat met andere ogen. Ik noem dat mijn 'toeristenogen' haha.

Jaklien
