4th December 2010: Sad news
I just received the news that one of the neighbours and close friend, Rogianne Gaytant has passed away after a tragic bus accident in Peru.
5th December 2010: Sitting area
The par of the back accommodation that needs to be done the most is the sitting area. I need to finish the pine wood and the ceiling. I tried doing both today.

The middle section
The side of land
6th December 2010: Tiling
The shower was tiled today. The back accommodation starts to make a difference.
A late night shot of the Escapade in Bruges. No longer covered by snow, but now by rust.
8th December 2010: Wheelhouse
After more then two years I finally started finishing the panels for the instrumentation aboard the Watergeus. I still needed to make a nice wooden panel for my VHF, my music radio, etc...
10th December 2010: Kitchen
Instead of working, I started making some drawings for the kitchen in the back accommodation.
11th December 2010: Yacht
Today I did a quick paint job on the yacht. I removed most of the rust and painted her. Not the perfect weather and certainly not cleaned enough, but it is important for the boats to look good, certainly over here.
In the morning I finished the tiling of the shower. That area is now nearly finished.

27th December 2010: Electricity
While it is now exactly five years ago we discovered the Watergeus abandoned in Sluiskil, it was the back accommodation that attracted both of us (and the price). Now five years later, the back accommodation has been rebuilt. I mainly worked on the new electricity, putting wires and building the fuse box.
In the afternoon I did some painting.
28th December 2010: Fusebox
Today we connected the wires to the fusebox. I now have electricity in the engine room and back accommodation, as well as in the wheelhouse.

And the lights are on!
30th December 2010: Cleaning and painting
The electricity was a major step.
