23rd November 2011 – Eurvine delivered the Carpe Diem to Beernem. He had to unload a cargo, but couldn’t take us any further. Andy had painted the ship, but since there was no paint available on the journey, he used the paint he found: water based paint. The ship looked quiet good from a distance but it was hard to undo the ropes since the deck was still sticky.
During the journey we discovered some cooling issues with the engine and at some point one of the belts broke. We made it to the Houtkaai, but the engine needs a good check.
