29th October 2010 – For a few days now I have been looking on information for bakdekkruisers. It is a very fascinating kind of ship. I never worked with yachts before so everything is new to me. A smaller engine, a thinner hull, more shapes and curves, trying to get most out of a space, etc…
Month: October 2010
24th October 2010 – I bought the latoflex for the bed in the back accommodation. Since my car was to small I had to drive twice. They are now inside, so I could finish the bed construction.
23th October 2010 – It was raining a lot. I couldn’t work outside. It was the perfect moment for shopping, buying a boiler, pump, a bed, etc… for the new back accommodation.
20th October 2010 – The winter is coming. Last night it was minus 2°C so I went to the Arma to fill the engines up with anti freeze.
When I was back aboard I made a solid frame for a bed in the back accommodation of the Watergeus. At least it was warm in my ship.
19th October 2010 – I went looking for a yacht in Ghent. Not sure yet what I should do. Too busy at the moment, But I’ll write some more in the future.
17th October 2010 – I started putting the wires for the electricity in the walls.
16th October 2010 – In the afternoon I finished the roof of the wheelhouse and another part of the frame in the back accommodation.
16th October 2010 – A potential buyer for the Frantsis came. Since I had already removed the water from the engine, for the coming winter period, I had to fill her up again.
13th October 2010 – I painted the side where all the wood had just been removed. Since I didn’t have much time I did a quick job.
12th October 2010 – I decided to put the Frantsis up for sale. Anyone who is interested can contact me. She is good start for a nice project of a little houseboat. It is technical also possible to make her look original again, but that would take you some time!
12th October 2010 – I removed the wall with the chipboard and the electricity. It was built much stronger then the other side.
11th October 2010 – I continued working on the roof in the wheelhouse, a very time consuming job. For a change, I painted the front accommodation in the afternoon. It is always nice to do something different in the afternoon.
1st October 2010 – I’m using my girlfriends camera. New pictures will be illustrating the text again. Thanks Carmen!
