The Watergeus is my home. It's an old Dutch Luxe Motor, built in 1929.

In November 2010 I bought a bakdekkruiser. She has no name at the moment. It is again a restoration project.
MS Frantsis
The Frantsis is a beurtschip I bought in May 2010. I never finished the project but sold her to a friend who will finish her.
