That is some incredible work. Just out of curiosity, was the catapult used for firing the grappling hook? It seems the cannons would have done much more damage.

Hello Kent,
Boarding grapnel is hung on the bowsprit and dropped to the deck of enemy ship like a fishhook.
A catapult was used to throw a projectile a great distance was effective in such times because cannons of early medieval artillery had small range and not were not as effective as stones or giant arrows made from wood with an iron tip.It was possible also throw flaming arrows or projectiles.

Acting as a privateer PvD earned valuable triptych of Hans Memling The Last Judgement.
Now it is one of the most valuable paintings in the museum in Gdansk.
