4th September 2011: Bow
The bow is nearly finished. Two bollards on each side, the hatch and an air vent are the finishing touch of the front cabin. I did some wood work on the inside.
A friend came to say hello. He recommended me changing the bathroom. Put it in the front of the barge and keep the back area as study room and sleeping room. I might consider it!
The hatch is finished and the bollards are made
10th September 2011: Thunder
Most of the day, I spent in the fore peak of the Hornblower. I did some woodwork and some insulation.
In the evening there was bad weather.
16th July 2011: A short day
I did some more woodwork today, building a bulkhead between the forepeak and the new bathroom. I had to to a party in the evening, so I didn't stay long.
24th September 2011: Painting
I spent most of the day painting one side and cleaning the deck. In the late afternoon I started preparing for the voyage to Bruges.

25th September 2011: Engine, steering and BBQ
A lot of technical issues have to be arranged before leaving Sluiskil. One of them was the cooling of the engine. The exhaust was leaking, so that needed a fix as well. The steering was not working properly and the wheelhouse was still a mess.
We had a great bbq with the neighbours in the evening.
