Together with a friend 'the neighbour' I bought a second ship. It is an old beurtschip. It might take some time before I start working on the Watergeus again.
12th June 2010: Cruising
I made a little cruise from Bruges to Ghent on a barge with my girlfriend. A time to relax. Sun was shining, but I had to wear glasses since it hurt to much.
My neighbour added a second coat and the last plate was welded on the Frantsis.
22nd June 2010: Steilsteven Vrijheid
No, I didn't buy another boat, instead I visited one in the yacht harbour in Bruges near the railway station.
24th June 2010: Barge visitors
Another lovely evening, one more for me to rest. The owner of the barge I visited on Tuesday came by to visit the two boats, the Watergeus and the Frantsis. It is always nice to exchange ideas and have a chat on boats and living afloat.
25th June 2010: Arma
A longtime ago I helped a few people finding a barge. They would use her as a centre for young people. I recommended them the Arma, a strongly built maatkast with the look of a Luxe Motor. More on that ship, the Arma, can be found here and here.
Today it was the official opening of the barge, and I was invited. It felt good to see a successful project!
30th June 2010: BBQ
Working day after day on a barge is long gone for me. I have done it to many times. You need to take at least one evening of during the week where you don’t work on your ship! We had a little bbq aboard the Frantsis.
