Hierbij doe ik, Abe Hoekstra (oud-medewerker van Het Waterloopkundig Laboratorium van 1966-1996),
een poging om een deel van de geschiedenis van het Waterloopkundig Laboratorium "De Voorst" in de Noordoostpolder vast te leggen.
Het Waterloopkundig Laboratorium heeft een deel van het Voorsterbos in gebruik gehad vanaf 1951 voor het doen van modelonderzoek
en heeft dit terrein verlaten in 1996. Dit deel van het bos is nu vooral bekend onder de naam Waterloopbos.

Op pad met "de Heer van de Waterweg"

In het Voorsterbos in de Noordoostpolder werden waterwerken uitgetest op schaal.
Tot de ingenieurs verdwenen, en de modellen overwoekerd raakten.
Langzaam maar zeker wordt het bos weer in ere hersteld. Kennislink ging kijken.

In 1996 verlieten de ingenieurs en medewerkers het Voorsterbos.
De nieuwe eigenaar was een projectontwikkelaar die er een bungalowpark van wilde maken.
Maar dat ging gelukkig niet door, vertelt Ton van der Meulen. In 2002 ging het bos, met behulp van geld van de Postcodeloterij,
over in handen van Natuurmonumenten. In 2005 ging het open voor publiek. Inmiddels staat het Waterloopbos op de voorlopige lijst
van Rijksmonumenten uit de opbouwperiode van 1959 tot 1965.
De definitieve plaatsing zal vermoedelijk dit jaar zijn beslag krijgen, denkt Van der Meulen.
En dan kunnen er eindelijk plannen gemaakt worden om de bouwwerken in het bos te restaureren.

First based at the tiny office "Nieuwe-Waterwegkeet" with ir. Ton van der Meulen and ir. Wijnand Hendrik Tutuarima

1967 - Guilder / Gulden / Hfl. (Hollandse Florijn)
Salary for 1967 was Hfl. 3624 guilders . . . Hfl. 302 per month
Hfl. 69.69 per week (Hfl. 1.74 per hour) . . . € 31.62 per week = € 0.79 per hour

'Jonswap' wave recording - example of 'irregular' wave in 1979
Together with other assistants we did a lot of handwork in that time - a.k.a. "turven" of wave recordings
One of the known "turf" locations was in the assistants-room of the Wind-flume
Above recording is a "Jonswap" example of irregular waves, regular waves was more common in early days,
but the output on the "Sanborn or HP Chart recorder" was almost identical ;)

M 918 - recap - 1968 - 1971
35 tests were done in a four year period, the duration of wave conditions was a total of 1381 hrs and 15 min
Soundings in mm were done along predefined lines, points were 20 cm apart (even 10 cm near waterline or critical areas)
Contour maps were made manual, difference charts and profiles were derived from these base maps
I had no computer on my desk that time, it was al done by hand !!!
Computer was likely used in a 2nd review for charts and profiles, but never for the soundings in this scale model

The outside scale models were vulnerable for weather circumstances and water quality ( leaves and dirt in canal water )
During wintertime all were flooded, so-called "winterpeil", to protect the concrete from frost damage
Over the years, the new measurement tool "micromolen" was more fragile as it's predecessor "ott-molen"
The water in most inside scale models was in a closed circuit (cc) with tap, filtered or ground water
red Kaliumpermanganat (KMnO4)/Potassium permanganate
and yellow fluorescent powder was used to determine intake, discharge, currents (fresh/salt) and other behaviours

$88 - Greyhound - Montreal, QC to Victoria, BC

F O U R T H   T I M E   I N   N O R T H  A M E R I C A
Greyhound ticket for $88 was a real STEAL . . . BINGO !!!
1987 - 11 weeks - across Canada to Vancouver Island
11 weeks - across Canada to Vancouver Island - overview - 1979 - 1980 - 1982 - 1987
Stops in Montreal (Gaylene), Mattawa (Motel), Blind River (M), Sault Ste. Marie (M), Nipigon (M),
Dryden (M), Revelstoke (M), Coquitlam/Vancouver (Allen & Martha) and Mill Bay (Marguerite)


Was for 9 weeks in Mill Bay at Marg's boarding house - one minute from ocean and Mill Bay Shopping Centre
Just the perfect spot, as I noticed this already in 1982 when I was there for 8 days ($5 per day instead of the average $25)
Did start (5 days) in Montreal were Marguerite's daughter Gaylene Wellman was living and working as waitress
In Sault Ste. Marie I ran into Scott Hurst and Dan Treichel from Green Bay, WI while on the Agawa Canyon Tour by train
Dryden, ON to Revelstoke, BC was done in one overnight bus ride (my longest Greyhound ride in hrs for this 2109 km)
In Coquitlam again with Allen & Martha McLaren for a short break
Maverick Coach Lines (or PCL) to Nanaimo on-board of BC-Ferries; towards Mill Bay I used my thumb for the last 70 km ;)
In those days there was less scheduled bus services on the Island as it is nowadays
I'm still in touch with Marguerite (b.1928), Gaylene Wellman and Scott Hurst - info PATS - 16 Aug 2017

Summer Holiday - 11 weeks - 26 May 1988 till 16 Aug 1988

I had my "own" chart in AutoCAD - the HAKO logo was an unofficial design from my side ;)
Saldo 1-1-1987 - maximum days I ever banked was 151 (~30 weeks) - 139 plus 12 A.D.V. days
reason . . . from 1983 to 1986 not on holiday, overtime and less days off

Lucky that the LABORATORY had this opportunity with flexible rules ;) . . . . . . . till 1994 I could eat this "cake" of days

My friends in the USA were always wondering "Do you have a job ?"
told them with a BIG smile :-)

Out of Boston I went by bus to Montreal to catch the Greyhound, I was forced due a strike to take the train to Mattawa
I hitch a ride of 186 km to Sudbury from where the bus schedule was running without problems
In Amberg, WI I met the townfolks while staying at Scott's cabin on the Pike River
Debbie, Mark, Wendy, Jack, Norma, Gordy, Dan, etc ... became long-time friends in that area
A couple of days later I took the bus out of Green Bay, WI to Duluth, MN while seeing rural Wisconsin
Overnight Greyhound bus ride of 1662 km - Duluth, MN to Medicine Hat, AB via Grand Forks, ND and Winnipeg, MB
Willem and Klaasje Santbergen from Vollenhove did visit their relatives in Medicine Hat, AB
Willem Santbergen was my colleague for several years on the Laboratory
Small world ;)
From 14 Jun 1988 till 25 Aug 1988 at Marg's place in Mill Bay, BC - Bas Kooijenga from Middelie was there too.
Drove together with Marg to Calgary in a small truck to supply daughter Gaylene with some furniture
we did stop twice in Salmon Arm / Enderby at Bill & Anita Murray née Wellman (Marg's older sister - b.1923)
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

I was one day with ir. Freek Verkerk and Peter Kluytenaar on the "Horizon" for trial manoeuvring and turning circle, etc ...
We left Emden (D) to a small test area on the North Sea near the Isle of Borkum
Buoys were placed identical as in Bermuda, so looking to the radar it was "Bermuda" for one day ;)
There was one passage with myself at the helm

The Horizon and the Zenith were the first ships of a fleet of floating grand hotels for the cruise brand Celebrity Cruises.
In the early 90’s, the Horizon (1990) as well as the Zenith (1992) were the biggest passengers ships ever built in Germany.

floppy images by PATS

Floppy disks, initially as 8-inch (200 mm) media and later in 5¼-inch (133 mm) and 3½-inch (90 mm) sizes,
were a ubiquitous form of data storage and exchange from the mid-1970s into the mid-2000s.
By the late 2000s, computers were rarely manufactured with installed floppy disk drives;
3½-inch floppy disks can be used with an external USB floppy disk drive,
but USB drives for 5¼-inch, 8-inch, and non-standard diskettes are rare to non-existent.
These formats are usually handled by older equipment.

Above for the WL period 1967 - 1996 I tried to mention as much WL projects in which I was involved,
realizing that I still missed several M, H, Q, R, S and W numbers

Hi Pats,

I came across your website while searching out Vollenhove on the internet.
Being a Vollenhove resident, I was wondering if you could help me?
I am planning to visit Vollenhove on April 25th
to visit my uncle's war grave on behalf of my family.
I will be traveling from Canada.
My Uncle (Jack Gibbs) is buried in De Voorst cemetery, shot down at age 19.
.................
I only speak English; will that be a problem getting around the town in general?
Many thanks for your assistance and reply.

Brenda Gibbs
