10th August 2017 – I finished the entrance of the ship and the stairway. This is now ready for painting.

One of the fixed items in the hold are a few old hatches. They are heavy and I had to cut them the right size. From my previous ship, the Aquarel, I had a few supports for the hatches left. They are are metal, so I had to cut them the right length. It took me most of the day to move it around, measure and get it in the right position. Working with wooden hatches must have been a hard life in the early days!
