April 2016 (part 2)
16th April 2016
The hold area is nearly ready and getting into shape. She will be ready for exhibitions and a permanent museum in the near future. You can already have a look at my site: http://www.museumschip.be .
I welded two supports for the zwierbomen. At least the deck looks cleaner now when they are in their brackets.

Some more photographs of the hold. The last details...

The light fittings were mounted and some of the pictures. I glued the frames to the wall so they would stay straight and don't fall of.

Today is a special day. The hold is looking finished. I still have to do the plumbing, heating, ventilation and some decoration. The ship is hundred years old and this means there is something to celebrate.
I organised a private party for some friends in the evening. I’am happy with the result. Some friends came earlier to load the beer on the ship and to build a tent in case it would be raining.
During the evening I walked several times outside. With only some light coming through, she looked good. Coloured lights in the hold , LED lights outside and people having fun. It felt right!
