3th May 2011: The last bits of plumbing
A few flexible pipes had to be fitted. This was done today! A potential buyer came for the Escapade. He will make his decision tomorrow.
4th May 2011: Back accommodation
I worked on nearly every aspect of the back accommodation: electricity, plumbing, oiling the floor and fitting the mirror again. The water tanks in the back are now filled up and not leaking, so I can start using the whole water circuit!
9th May 2011: Back accommodation ready!
An old tug from Nieuwpoort passed along us
The wall dividing the sleeping area from te kitchen
The sleeping a area: A nice comfortable two person bed
Entrance to the sitting area
Where the television will come
The sitting area, nice to relax or watch television
The kitchen unit with coffee machine, boiler and micro wave
The toilet area: some minor jobs still needs to be done
The back accommodation: ready for renting
Seen from the back, the red primer is looking good. I like the new colour scheme
11th May 2011: Painting the deck
Underneath the hatches is the metal roof. It had never been painted. Since I need some metal for the Hornblower, I cleaned a big area, removed the rust and put a coat of primer. The hatches are bolted to the den, but all the bolts are rusted. I might buy some rvs bolts in the near future! It will take less time to open them.
23th May 2011: Just a picture
With the Escapade nearly sold I now have some more time for the Watergeus again. All these little jobs that needs doing can finally be done!

27th May 2011: Oostende Voor Anker
As every year, I make a quick visit to some friends and interesting ships on Oostende Voor Anker. I was surprised to see a VIC ship being moored there. I spent most of the time board this ship.
