Living Afloat: June 2016
26th June 2016
It is very busy at the moment. Whenever I have some time, I'm filling up the gap between December 2015 and now. If some links are broken, just let me know. I'm cleaning up the site.
The following months were updated including many new pictures.

Just some more updates and new pictures.
Today we went to Ghent. A friend of mine asked for some advice on salvaging a sunken spits barge. When we arrived, i realised there was little to no hope to get this thing afloat without taking risks of spending a lot of money.
In the afternoon, we made a walk in Ghent and, as usual, I took some pictures.

I finished work on the 'Op Hoop van Zegen' and went to my car when I noticed the Carpe Diem was listing badly. I had a closer look and it certainly didn't look right. The owner is someone I know, so I called him. He would come tomorrow, but I explained to him it was a matter of hours as she was listing. He came 20 minutes later. There was no water visible on the floor, but when the hatch near the bulkhead was open we noticed a lot of water. After pumping for halve an hour, I called another friend with a better pump. In the meantime, the outlets for kitchen and sink were under water. I took a dinghy and went in the water to seal them.
