URK LINKS

http://www.urk.nl/
This is the Urk municipality website. It is available in Dutch and English.

The rest of these sites are not in English, but still offer lots of interesting information and pictures of Urk.

GY193 - De Hoop
Pictures of the Urk fishing vessel De Hoop - GY193, one of the ships featured in the film. The hull number on most Urk vessels starts with the letters UK for Urk. However, because of quotas limiting the amount of fish that can be caught, many ships find it more favorable to fish under a different flag. In this case the GY stands for Grimsby in England.

Z198 - Kees Korf
Similarly, the Kees Korf - Z198 sails under the Belgian flag. The Z stands for Zeebrugge. The ship is named for Kees Korf, a young fisherman who was lost at sea in 1997.
