Razzle Dazzle in Arnhem


From Rik:

“Today I read your article about the razzle dazzle boats during WWI. I never knew about the history of these kind of paintings on boats. What I did know was a boat situated in Arnhem (the Netherlands), with exactly that kind of painting. It is called “De Boei” (the buoy) and is used for the day and night shelter for drug-addicts. I tried to find out why the boat was painted this way. Does the city of Arnhem want to “hide” these people? I did not find the answer on that. But I do think the opposite happened, a lot of people know about this remarkable boat.”
