31st May 2009 – The last bit of plumbing was done today, fixing a small leak in the waste water piping. Meanwhile during the day major parts of the front accommodation were insulated.
Month: May 2009
27th May 2009 – I started mounting the furniture so I could measure the height of the fittings needed in the wall. In the evening some more plumbing was done.
26th May 2009 – Since we need to know the height of the sink for the bathroom, I went to get the furniture I wanted.
13th May 2009 – The plumbing for the bathroom is ending it’s final stage. A few more pipes were connected, but it could all have been done more easier if the frames were straight and less corners were built.
5th May 2009 – In the afternoon I filled the tanks up to their maximum level (1000 liters each) and emptied them through the pump that was connected last week. I had a nice deck wash!
The outside dining table was painted. It was now the third year I had it, so it had to be painted once to extend it’s lifetime.
In the forepeak, the floor was painted red. If it turns out to be nice, I might do it as well in the living room. It’s an idea from another ship.
4th May 2009 – In the late evening, I finished the floor in the forepeak. Since not all planks were fixed and I felt through recently, I decided to finish this job first. Before you know, somebody else could fall through as well.
3th May 2009 – In the morning we reconnected the tanks. We let them dry before putting water in and yes they remained dry, no leaks! In the afternoon we made the copper fittings for the bathroom and kitchen.
