24th May 2011 – The bakdekkruiser has been sold. It is hard to maintain one boat by an individual. Having two boats is become more difficult, three is a disaster. She was one of my favorite ships, but I had no time to finish her.
Since I’m working on the Snik in Sluiskil, it was becoming to expensive to work on two projects at the same time, while still maintaining the Watergeus.
I hope the new owner will convert her and put her back in original condition. I wish him good luck with his new ship!
The short period I was the owner of the Escapade, I learned a lot on bakdekkruisers, yachts and diesel engines. People having questions on bakdekkruisers can always contact me. I have a large collection of information, books and pictures!
