26th July 2010 – Since I have my ship I met many wonderful people. There is an English woman waiting for her barge to be brought over to London. Next to her, another English couple is moored with their barge. We all went for a drink!

17th July 2010 – The bathroom in the Watergeus was finished last year, but a little step to get into it wasn’t made yet. A small job I did this morning.
The good thing about our project is partly we think before we do! With the Watergeus, I did while I was thinking. The more negative side of this is I made another plan for the conversion.
So at this moment, I would need four little barges like the Frantsis, because every plan we make has some potential. To be continued…
15th July 2010 – It was getting time to work on the Watergeus again. A ship needs maintenance and somebody to take care of her. The front deck was cleaned and painted, or at least a part of it. Where rust was coming through on the spots I did earlier this year, I brushed the metal and put a new coat of primer.
4th July 2010 – A few neighbours came over for a drink. Since the deck of the Frantsis is always clear, I don’t like to have a messy boat next to me after the Ontario has left, there is enough space for people to sit comfortable on the water. I’m now pretty much convinced when converting a boat to make sure there is enough space to sit outside!
