15th September 2018 – I wasn’t expecting the engine to run or even to see the Aquarel (now Marie-Louise) moving when I called the owner. They left Amsterdam when I called and we arranged to meet them in Huizen.

I arrived a little earlier then expected, but managed to take some great shots from the top of the harbour entrance. There were no words to describe how I felt. We talked for some time with the owners, went on board and had a look in the engine room and hold.
