Some photos of the deck of the ship

Unusually for the time, Vasa had a continuous upper deck running from the bow to the stern. Usual practice was to have a large opening in the deck amidships, so that the forecastle and quarterdeck were individual structures. Again, Vasa's builders went for a more solid, heavier solution... no wonder she was unstable.
