Wooden boats

26th June 2012 – A couple asked me to have a look at a wooden ship and the options of restoring her. He had just bought it without realizing the condition it was in. The word salvage would be more appropriate then restoration. I wouldn’t know where to start.

While I was there, and after having a drink with them, I found some older fishing boats in wood. All of them I’ve known when I lived in Ostend as a kid. Nice to see them back!

Working on a yacht in Oosterhout

9th June 2012 – Sill busy. I’m working on several projects at the same time, helping people around. I’m still updating the pages of the Watergeus.

Today I went to Oosterhout, helping a friend sorting out his new yacht. It’s an eighties built yacht with a classic look. Metal hull and a wooden top construction.

Watergeus – To Bruges

7th June 2012 – We left at six o’clock and arrived three hours later on the mooring. Everything went well till I touched a 380v cable and hurt myself…

The rest of they day I decided to keep it easy and relax…
