Month: January 2016

Aquarel – Buying a small kitchen

24th January 2016 – What else can somebody do who can’t lift a toolbox? Just go shopping. I went to Ikea with my friends. I bought my kitchen. They loaded it in a truck and unloaded it aboard.

Sometimes not being able to do something isn’t that bad anyway…

Op Hoop van Zegen – Moving the ship

2nd January 2016 – The Waterway organisation put up a sign near the ‘Op Hoop van Zegen’. Only moorings for commercial service was mentioned. A friend with a small ship came to move the ship. Maybe, what we used as a tug was to small and light. My ship has a weight of 35 tons. We managed to move her without hitting any other ship. It was sometimes close, but only a minor damaged to my rudder was the result of a near collision.

Aquarel – Shelves

18th January 2016 – I ran out of shelves. A friend came with some new shelves and mounted them for me. In one week, I realized, I hadn’t done much, but it also came to mind that I’m keeping a lot of stuff on my ship.

Will I ever need all this equipment and parts?

Aquarel – Sorting out tools

13th January 2016 – Being able to do nothing is very annoying. Last month I build some shelves, so I started sorting out my small tools and parts. I bought some boxes and a label machine. I started putting a label on every box. It is a major job, but it is the only job I can handle at the moment.
