20th October 2018 – Realising I won’t have enough zinc primer, I drove back to Antwerp to get some more. I bought everything they had to make sure I have enough. Since I also cleaned the decks with their high pressure machine, I can paint them as well.

The rest of the afternoon, I spent chipping the hull and removing rust. I did a part of the stern and a lot of rust came off. I even discovered another weak rivet.
